This will be my 18th year teaching and my 13th year teaching Art at REL.   Prior to joining the REL faculty, I taught Art, PE and Social Studies in Dallas ISD, as well as, I taught Social Studies and coached volleyball, basketball and track at Bullard Middle School.

I graduated from REL in 1997. 
I graduated with a B.F.A, in 2001 and completed my Masters in 2003, from Austin College in Sherman, Texas.

I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year, teaching Art 1, Pre-AP Art 1, Pre-AP Art 2, AP Drawing and AP Art History. I have always wanted to be a teacher, specifically an art teacher for as long as I can remember- I truly love what I do.
