I began my teaching career in 1985, but came to HPHS in 2009. I received a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and an M.Ed in Teacher Leadership from Lamar University. Currently, I teach AP Human Geography and U.S. History. Over the years I have taught many of the subjects housed under the Social Studies Department, but have a particular fondness for the geographies and U.S. History. I am a co-sponsor of Rho Kappa, the Social Studies National Honor Society.
