    I am beyond thrilled to continue our mission here at Commander William C. McCool Academy!  We believe McCool Academy's unique instructional model of project-based learning with a S.T.E.A.M. curricular focus is how students learn best!  We believe learners are most actively invested in their learning when teaching is authentic and applied in a real-world context while engaging in meaningful projects.   

    As I begin my eleventh year in Lubbock ISD, I have served at Estacado High School, O.L. Slaton and Smylie Wilson Middle School in various roles.

    I received my bachelor's degree in Multidisciplinary Studies from Lubbock Christian University. I followed by obtaining my bachelor's degree with a master's degree in Educational Leadership also from Lubbock Christian University. 

    My husband is an assistant principal at Coronado High School. He and I have one amazingly bright, loving son who attends school in Lubbock ISD. We love spending time together and traveling!

    I look forward to launching a third year here at Commander William C. McCool Academy! Go Astronauts!!!
