I am beginning my fifteenth year in education and my fourth year in Allen ISD. I am extremely excited to be part of this district and community!
In 1999, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2006, I received my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M-Commerce.
I began my career teaching third grade in Garland ISD. After teaching there for five years, I then taught third grade in Highland Park for four years. In 2008, I went to Lovejoy Elementary to serve as their assistant principal. Two years later I came to Allen ISD.
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful and supportive husband Michael for 13 years. Six years ago we were blessed with a beautiful son, Gavin. He is the happiest, most easy-going child. We enjoy his curiosity, watching him grow and his discovery of new things. He will be starting Kindergarten this year. In July of 2012, we welcomed our second child Garrett Ryan. He is a beautiful, happy and sweet little boy. We are truly blessed!
I am elated to be here at Vaughan Elementary as your Assistant Principal. I am passionate about working with children and I absolutely love my job. I believe all students can and will learn at their highest potential if given the right opportunity. Thank you for giving me the chance to serve your children.
I am looking forward to a great year. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
