About Me: This is my 21st year teaching in the Alvin ISD; all of it at Harby. I have been coaching Swimming/Warterpolo for 19 years. Our season is in the spring, starting around Spring Break. I am also the sponser of Harby's Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
I have been teaching CCR my entire teaching career at Harby. It started in the fall of '98 as Career Connections, evolving to the present course. We learn and explore many facets of the career world, learning to prepare ourselves for high school and higher education. We also learn many transferable business skills.
I teach Teen Leadership as well. This is an enriching course where we learn many leadership and relationship skills that will benefit us greatly at school and in life.
I also teach Technology Applications 1 and 2. Here we learn about using software and hardware to apply it a variety of situations. The first half of the course centers on learning the Microsoft suite of software, and the second half on computer coding and graphic software.
I have lived in the Houston/Alvin/Pearland area my entire life. I graduated from Lamar High School and was on their swim team. I have two business degrees: an Associates of Applied Science in Business from San Jacinto College and a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration from the University of Houston. Before teaching, I spent about 12 years as a Legal Analyst for Shell Oil Co. and Chevron.
Besides spending time with my great family, I enjoy surfing, playing music (drums, guitar, and recently the ukulele), biking, swimming, golf, disk golf, and triathlons (although I don't care for the running..) I attend Fellowship Bible Church in Pearland, and play the drums in the band. I also serve at Sandy Creek Bible Camp near Brenham.
We have a lot of fun in my classes - I look forward to many great memories...
