This will be my sixth year at Harby and I am excited to fill for the second year the position of Advanced Academic Specialist for the campus. Serving as the specialist, I will be providing academic support for our students, and available peer support for our teachers as they design engaging work.


Our goal is to build a strong community among all our advanced academic students, their families, and our staff. A strong community achieves great goals and ambitious visions, and we are ambitious at Harby.


Six years ago I came to Harby because it was the campus where I wanted to teach. The students and staff treated one another with respect and believed in what they could achieve, and I wanted to be part of it. Serving in my current role, I find the opportunity to support academic and cultural excellence on campus a new challenge and privilege.


Together we can move the bar higher, lift the ceiling of what might be, and pursue with passion what will be. Anyone can wait for something good to happen, but at Harby we don't wait; we step into the possibility and make it a reality.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 281-734-7297. I am teaching classes in the morning, but will generally be available from 12:00 - 5:00 pm.
