MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER / LANGUAGE ARTS
I am thrilled to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty as a Middle School Language Arts Teacher. My Bachelor’s Degree is in English and Speech Secondary Education and my Master’s Degree is in Educational Administration. During my thirteen years in Education, I have taught 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and Performing Arts and served as a Middle School Vice Principal and Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction. While I enjoyed my experience in school leadership, I realized how much I missed teaching Middle School.
I love to engage students in creative activities that enhance their reading and writing skills while exposing them to public speaking and theater. My goal is to inspire students’ confidence in their ability to read and synthesize diverse texts as well as to write and speak poignantly about various topics. I want students to view my classroom as a safe environment that promotes respect for themselves, each other, and both the classroom and school community.

In the early ‘80s, she began her journey as an educator working with physically and intellectually challenged children. It was hard work, and the children often made very minimal progress. However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
