I’m a native of Silsbee, graduating from Silsbee High School in 2001. After graduation, I went on to Stephen F. Austin State University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in English (2005) and a Master’s in English (2007).
I currently have eight years of experience teaching English. I taught English Composition and English Analysis during the 2006-2007 school year at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. I also taught a Summer I English Composition course at the Lamar Institute of Technology (Silsbee location) in June 2009 and 2016. I am currently teaching the course for the fall semester.
From August 2007 to the end of May 2009, I was a reporter for The Hardin County News and The Beaumont Enterprise. My primary beats were Silsbee, Kountze, and Sour Lake. While I enjoyed some parts of the job, I learned I really enjoyed teaching and decided to return to the education field. I hope to have a great time in Kountze (my mom is a Kountze Lion, so it’s in the blood) getting to know my students, their parents/guardians, and the community.
Please know that my door is always open, so feel free to communicate with me about any questions or concerns. I believe communication is highly important to a student’s success.
