Elementary Guidance Counselor
I graduated from Honey Grove High School in 2007. While in high school, I took dual credit courses from Paris Junior College. I graduated with 30 college credit hours. After high school, I moved to Tyler, Texas and attended The University of Texas at Tyler from 2007-2010. I graduated in May 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies EC-6. I did my student teaching at Lindale ISD. In August 2016, I decided to pursue my Masters Degree in School Counseling from Angelo State University. I graduated with my Masters Degree in December 2017.
My Texas certifications include EC-6 Generalist, 4-8 Generalist, ESL K-12, and School Counseling K-12.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from UT Tyler. I have a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Angelo State University.
I have attended many workshops over the past 9 years from ESL, GT, math, reading, poverty training, and centers/stations in the classroom. Last year I attended the Lone Star State School Counselor conference in Frisco and learned a lot of great tools, tips, and resources for school counseling!
This is my first year with Bonham ISD and I am very excited to serve the students and be a voice for them.
I started teaching 4th grade at Quitman ISD in August 2010. I taught at Quitman for 3 years. Then my family moved to Paris, Texas and I taught 3rd grade at Paris ISD for 4 years. My family moved to Honey Grove in 2017 and I became a School Counselor for Honey Grove ISD from August 2017-May 2019. My husband and I both work for Bonham ISD now, and we are very excited to be at this awesome district together!
My husband, Eric, and I have been married for 9 years. Eric is the Speech Teacher and Boys Basketball Coach at BHS. We have two sons. Grady is 7 years old and will be in 2nd grade at Finley-Oates Elementary. Gentry is 4 years old and will be in Pre-K at Bailey Inglish. Our whole family will be Purple Warriors this year and we are excited! We have a dog, Sophee, that is 11 years old and a cat, Pete, that is 1 year old. We love the Dallas Mavericks and try to attend as many games as possible!
One of my hobbies includes playing the piano. I have been playing for 25 years! I am blessed to be a part of my church praise band every Sunday.
I also love to exercise. I am a certified Step Aerobics and Hip-Hop Dance group fitness instructor.
When I am not at school, my family and I love to attend any sporting event together, be involved at our church, and be outside playing basketball or riding bikes together.
