I was born in Amarillo and raised on a farm with 3 brothers and 2 sisters. I attended school at Highland Park and then Caprock High School. I started at Amarillo College where I received my Associate’s degree. I received my Bachelor’s degree from West Texas State University and my Master’s degree from West Texas A&M University. I have been in education for 35 years and 21 of them have been with Hereford ISD. I have taught first through third grade as well as 6th and 7th. I was a principal for 5 years at a couple of private schools. I was an Assistant Principal for HISD for 7 years. I am happy to be in my 6th year as Principal at Northwest. I enjoy camping in the mountains, spending time with my family, and baking.
