    Welcome to my webpage!  Thank you for taking the time to find out more about me and the AVID program at AHS.  I hope this page will provide you with the information needed to find out what AVID is, how it works at AHS, the course syllabus, required materials, forms and handouts that will be used throughout the year, field trips and much, much more.


    I started teaching for ALVIN ISD the 2005-2006 school year as a Communication Applications (speech) teacher.  Not only was this my first year in the district, it was my first year in the teaching profession.  After several years of teaching Comm Apps I was introduced to the AVID program.  Once I heard about the mission and goals of the program I knew AVID was something I wanted to get involved in.  Luckily I was selected to be one of the AVID Elective teachers starting the 2011-2012 school year.  I believe in the program, its mission and the students it serves.  I hope this is reflected in the way I conduct myself and my classes.
    I was born and raised in Copperas Cove, TX.  My father was stationed at Fort Hood and I was lucky to grow up in the wonderful military community.  Unlike other "army brats" I only had to move once to Germany and spent my elementary, junior high and high school years in CCISD.  After graduation in 1992 I attended Lamar University in Beaumont, TX where I received a Bachelors degree in Communication. Since then I have returned and completed two more college degrees.  
    I am married to wonderful man, Hans, and we have a young daughter named Zoie.  Although we are not from the area we are pleased to call the Alvin area home and appreciate the small town feel close to such a large city.  I enjoy spending time with my family in Copperas Cove, traveling (especially to see my in-laws in Bermuda), going to the movies and relaxing days at home!.
