I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2006 and have taught at Royse City Middle School since then. I decided to go back to college and become a social studies teacher after the September 11th 2001 Terrorist Attacks and the death of my father a month later. My father was a career Air Force NCO. He and many others have selflessly served our nation. After reflecting on the direction of my life I decided to make a change and do something to contribute to our amazing country.
I grew up living in and visiting other countries. I had the opportunity to meet and interact with people from many nations. I have a great appreciation for our country and the freedoms we have here. I hope to inspire students to take advantage of those freedoms by participating in government and becoming a responsible citizen. I hope to instill in our students an appreciation for the history of this great nation and the sacrifice of those who have served it.
