    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at the most superb middle school in Tyler ISD – Boulter Middle School. I am so proud to be the principal of such a superb school, with committed Viking parents, students, staff, and community.

    I am East Texas born and raised in the small town of Rusk. I received my Associate of Science in Elementary Education from Jacksonville Baptist College, my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from University of Texas at Tyler, and my Master’s of Arts in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin State University and currently working on my Doctorate. I have six years worth of teaching experience and I am beginning my 15th year in administration.

    My goal at Boulter is to create a partnership with staff and parents to meet the challenges of learning and life for students, as they make the transition from middle school to high school. We strive for continued partnerships throughout the school, families, and community. This partnership is one that thrives on communication, dedication, and hard work. You as a parent/guardian are an invaluable resource to us as we strive to provide a quality learning experience for the students of Boulter Middle. As a parent/guardian of a child who will graduate in the twenty-first century, you justifiably have high expectations of your child and his/her school, and so do we. 

    Here at Boulter, we are committed to providing diverse instruction that nurtures the academic, emotional, physical, social, and creative abilities of all students in a safe environment based on honesty and mutual respect ensuring that “We are NOT just playing school.”  

    When I’m not “On Time, On Task and On a Mission” with the Vikings” at Boulter Middle, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling, and decorating.

    We earnestly solicit your goodwill and cooperation as we work to success at Boulter Middle and invite you to visit our campus. Our doors are always open to you and your comments and/or suggestions.

    Finally yet importantly, I want to say, welcome to Viking Nation where we are navigating to success!
