My road in life took a while to figure out.
Graduated from Sinton High School in May 1997.
Enrolled in Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas as a Theater Arts Major in August 1997.
Moved from Corpus Christi to Houston with my ex-fiance. I took a year off from school and worked at a dermatologist office. I was going to start school, but then 9/11 happened and I moved back alone.
Started school at TAMU-CC as an education major because my dad said that acting didn't pay the bills. After one year, I changed it to Special Education.
I graduated from TAMU-CC in May of 2004 and started teaching in August 2004 at Tom Browne Middle School in Corpus Christi where I was the behavior teacher for 3 years.
While in Corpus I met my husband who was stationed at Naval Station Ingleside, and then we moved to New Braunfels upon his honorable discharge. I began working with Comal ISD.
I started working at GFES as an elementary behavior teacher, then transferred to CLHS, and am now at MECHS.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"That there wasn't any money in teaching so don't bother going into that field- it's not worth it. "
