I was born in Springfield, Missouri while my father was attending college. After his graduation we moved back to Garland where my parents were from. I attended school in Garland at Bullock Elementary, Jackson Middle School and North Garland high school. I went to college and received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at The University of North Texas and a Master's degree in Educational Administration. I taught Kindergarten and Fourth grades at Spring Creek Elementary in GISD before becoming an Assistant Principal at Rowlett Elementary and then a Principal at Cooper and Rowlett Elementary.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for thirty years. We have a daughter, Jordan and a son Chase. Jordan graduated from Texas State University and is employed with GISD and my son is a recent graduate at Texas A&M and works for Cintas in the Woodlands. During my free time I enjoy reading, shopping, gardening and spending time at our lake house at Cedar Creek Lake. I am excited about leading our school into many exciting endeavors over the next few years!
I was born in a little town about 35 miles east of Dallas -- Terrell! After graduating from Terrell High School, I pursued and completed a Bachelor's degree from Bishop College, a Master's degree from Perkins School of Theology at SMU, a Master's degree from Stephen F. Austin State University, a Doctor of Ministry degree from Perkins School of Theology at SMU.
I started teaching in Dallas ISD, then in Longview ISD, back to Dallas ISD, and then to Garland ISD. I started as an administrator at Schrade Middle School to Watson MST to Steadham Elementary, and now at Walnut Glen Academy for Excellence. I will continue to make a positive impact in the lives of the staff, students, and the community.
I have been married to wife, Savitri, for 30 years on August 26th. We have three sons, Drew, Josh, and Caleb.
Hi WGA Snow Leopards!! I am beginning my 6th year as the Secretary at Walnut Glen Academy and I absolutely LOVE my job! Prior to coming to WGA, I was the Data Clerk at Rowlett Elementary for 17 years. I grew up as an "Air Force Brat". I was born in San Antonio, and shortly after we went to Japan for 3 years. We then returned to the states and lived in Texas and Florida. I am happily married to my husband Rick, for 37 years! We have 4 children and there are 6 littles that call me Mimi (my favorite title). When I am not at work, I enjoy working in my yard, traveling, swimming and playing with my grandkids. We absolutely LOVE Christmas at my house! In fact, we've been known to put our Christmas tree up in October!! I'm excited for this school year, and whatever it brings we will get through it together!!
I was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Garland. I attended school right here in GISD from Elementary through High School. I am a proud Garland High School Alumni (Gig Em Owls!) After graduating I served in the military for 9 years as a Information Technology Specialist for the United States Army. I met my fiance through the military and we share two beautiful daughters Isabelle (8) and Alaina (11). I also have to fur babies Groot (dog) and Kit (cat). I graduated this Spring from the University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!). I love all things technology and being able to work with and teach both students and teachers how to utilize devices while teaching and learning. I love to run in my spare time and work on crafts and cook as well! This will be my fourth year at WGA and I love my Snow Leopard family!
