Hello Hurricanes! I am honored to return to Heritage Middle School to serve our students, staff, and community as the Associate Principal! This is my eighth year with East Central Independent School District, and my fifth year in administration this role. I started my ECISD career as a coach and English teacher at Heritage. After a year, I moved to ECHS to coach and teach. I began my administrative career during the 2015-2016 school year at ECHS, and last year I served as the Associate Principal there. I have fourteen years of educational experience serving in various capacities. I taught English I, 8th Grade Science, 7th Grade English, and served as a middle school Athletic Coordinator. I am excited to be in this role serving a wonderful community! At East Central we strive to provide meaningful, rigorous experiences for every student, every day. As a continuous life-long learner, I am constantly reflecting upon practices, procedures, and curriculum to help prepare our youth for college and career readiness. I graduated from Tarleton State University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology, and I received my Master of Science in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M--- Kingsville. I completed my Superintendent program in 2018. Again, I am honored to serve our community, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for our students!
