All About Me

I am truly honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the Highland Park community and Hyer Elementary family.  I am looking forward to working with students, colleagues, and parents as we embark on a new school year.   


I am a Hyer graduate and a HPISD class of 2000 graduate.  I went to Stephen F. Austin State University where I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education.  I previously taught preschool for three years and was a substitute teacher at Hyer.  Then three years ago I started as the 1st grade Instructional Assistant and then this past year 2018-2019 school year I moved to be the Kindergarten Instructional Assistant, where I started the school year in a kindergarten classroom and then moved to teach the Fundamentals class.  Now, for the 2019-2020 I am back to work with the wonderful kindergartners again.  I am looking forward to a great year.  I have two children who both went to Hyer and they loved being a Husky but have now moved on the MIS and HPMS.
