I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2001, and fulfilled my dream of becoming a teacher. The 2020-2021 school year marks my 19th year in teaching. Each year has brought on new challenges, and I can honestly say I've learned something valuable every year. Never did I think I'd be teaching virtually to my students. The COVID19 global pandemic has changed all of our lives, but we have adapted and persevered. I believe that you NEVER stop learning and growing so that you can continue to better yourself. YOU are in control of your life. YOU choose your destiny. YOU set a goal and decide if it is reached. ALWAYS believe that YOU can achieve ANYTHING!
