I grew up in Plano and went to college at Texas A&M University (Whoop!). After college, I spent a few years in North Carolina and San Antonio before moving back to the Dallas area. My husband Brian and I have three daughters, Allie, Tess and Bela. We adopted the younger two from Ethiopia in 2013. Our dog, Samson, joined our family in spring 2021. We are active members at Providence Church.
My teaching career began in Plano in 2008 where I taught high school business and technology classes. Since that time I have focused on middle and high school history in public charter schools.
My hobbies are diverse; reading, watching movies, crafting all kinds of beautiful things, building furniture, gardening and researching my latest interest! We love to travel as a family and have a goal of visiting all 50 states (only 15 to go!)
Why do you choose to work at Legacy?
Because the bulk of my teaching experience has been in public schools, I am very excited to join Legacy's middle school faculty. I love the mission of the school and I am eager to incorporate a Christian worldview into my classes. I am looking forward to engaging with my students, not just in classwork, but also in Christianity. I hope to point students to the wonder of our great God through the study of technology!
What is your favorite scripture? Why?
One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 73:25-26, “Whom have I in heaven by You, and earth has nothing I desire besides You. Though my flesh and my heart shall fail, the Lord is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” I love this passage because it expresses my desire to know and love God with all my heart and in all my deeds, but also the reality of human nature. Despite my failures, He holds me close and is my hope for eternal salvation.
