About Me

Educational History:

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree and certification from Texas A&M University-Commerce. I completed my Master’s degree from the University of Texas at Tyler. My education has been in special education, counseling and psychology. 

Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor of Science of Interdisciplinary Studies in Special Education

Master of Science in Clinical Psychology

EC-12 Special Education Certification

 

Professional Development:

  • Trauma-Focused CBT 2.0, May 2019
  • Handle with Care Crisis Intervention, February 2020
  • Positive Behavior Supports, March 2019

Current Position:

I am thrilled to be back in education here in my first year at Bonham ISD. I am the Third Grade Resource teacher at Finley-Oates Elementary. 
 

Previous Position:

I completed a semester of teaching at Commerce ISD in elementary and high school Life Skills classrooms, and high school Resource English. I completed a semester of teaching at Greenville ISD in a K-2 Autism classroom. 

During my graduate studies I was a project leader for research in grades 4-12 Social Emotional curriculum in school districts in the East Texa region. I also worked in disability services providing Curriculum and Behavior support with adults. I most recently completed an internship at East Texas Center for Independent Living working with adults with disabilities, where I provided counseling and educational services and led adult education programs. Most of my therapy experience has been in the area of complex trauma and diverse populations. 

I hope to continue to work in Special Education and disability services for a long time. 

Family Information:

I am the youngest of five kids, and the proud aunt of 9 awesome neices and nephews. My oldest neice recently graduated high school, and my youngest nephew just turned 4. 

My parents have been involved in leadership in homeschooling and children’s ministry education for many years.

One of my sisters is a very gifted musician and worked in music education in the Rio Grande Vally for almost a decade. 

I have an formerly feral cat named Miss Kitty that I make up songs for. 

Personal Information:

 

  • I enjoy singing and have sung in choirs and churches of many kinds. 
  • I name my plants after characters from shows and movies. 
  • I try to write as much as possible. It is my favorite form of self-care. 
  • I aim to try new things when I can: whether that is new places, new foods, or learning new things.
