Why TSAS? I wanted to work at TSAS because all the kids I’ve ever met that went to school here reminded me of the people I actively sought out in my teenage years: Creative, compassionate and open to many paths in life.

College:  Central Texas State University and St. Edward’s University

Why TSAS? I worked in public history and education on the programming side for many years and learned a lot about what constitutes educational excellence. After a long term substitute teaching assignment at TSAS in 2012 I knew that teaching here would be my dream job, and it is. TSAS gives teachers the freedom develop innovative and challenging curriculum and the students are awesome!

Interesting Fact:  I’m an army brat and married a peripatetic historian so, as Johnny Cash says, “I’ve been everywhere, man.” I’ve lived in two countries and eleven states and travel every change I get.

Why TSAS? I chose TSAS because of the atmosphere and the unique oppurtunities provided to students and faculty. The faculty to student ratio is ideal and the support system that teachers get is out of this world!

Interesting Facts: I am an avid horseman, reader, and movie watcher. On the weekends you will find on the front porch with a book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.
