Greetings Grizzlies! I am the Campus Instructional Specialist here at Union Grove Middle School. My goal is to be the best resource for teachers, and I am excited to begin this journey with you in the 2023-2024 school year!  

I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA (Geaux Saints), but have lived here in the Killeen/Harker Heights area for the past 23 years. I received my BS in Political Science from Texas A&M University Central Texas and my Masters in American History from Pace University. I am married to an outstanding educator, and we have three amazing kids (two of whom are Grizzlies), and a soon-to-be daughter-in-law. 

For the past 11 years, I taught at Killeen High School. My roles included AP and IB teacher, department lead teacher, NHS Advisor, and IB Coordinator.  I also initiated the first African American Studies course in the district. I was honored to be the KHS Teacher of the Year in 2020. 

I am a strong believer in the power of unlimited potential. All of us have untapped potential, skills we possess that simply need the right time, resources, and attention to grow. A teacher is a guide, the facilitator of dreams unrealized. I cannot wait to see potential lead to self-realization and success as Grizzly dreams become reality!
