First let me say how excited I am to be part of the Sunnyvale ISD family. Sunnyvale has shown me that it is a place focused on student success, family, and tradition. All the things I am so passionate about. Coming in as the new Federal Programs Director & District At-Risk Coordinator, I am adamant about making sure the district receives any and all financial means available to guarantee that our students and teachers have access to the best academic tools, curriculum, and resources out there. The second half of my role is to be an ally for students and their families that may hit some speedbumps on their journey to the K-12 finish line, which is graduation. Some of those speedbumps could be attendance issues, academic challenges, or even home-life needs. I am here as an overall support.
I would like to share a little background about myself. I grew up right down the road in Canton, Texas. After graduating high School there, I attended Stephen F. Austin State University to earn my Bachelors degree. In 2013, I earned my Masters of Education Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from University of Arizona Global Campus as an Instructional Coach & Interventionist. In 2016, I completed my coursework at Grand Canyon University for my Doctorate of Education in Organizational K-12 Leadership. Administration was in my heart so I earned my Principal Certification from Lamar University in 2017. This past July , I returned to Lamar University to earn my Superintendent Certification. Prior to my arrival at Sunnyvale ISD, I served as a Principal for 5 years in Greenville ISD. I have an amazing 12-year-old son , who is also a Sunnyvale Raider.
We both are looking forward to another great school year here at SISD !
