It is an honor to be serving as Superintendent in Somerville ISD. I look forward to continuing to build partnerships with students, parents, the community, and staff to make our school district the best place to learn and grow.

I obtained a Master's Degree of Education from Sam Houston State University and a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Biology from Prairie View A & M. I have been an educator for twenty years and I started as a high school science teacher, then assistant principal, principal, and director of curriculum.

My family moved to this area in 2012 from Tomball Texas and we love it here in Somerville. My husband and I have three sons, one who graduated from Somerville HS in 2017 and another who will be graduating this year. We also have three grandchildren who will be attending Somerville ISD in the near future.

I am so fortunate to spend my days working in Somerville ISD with such a great group of students, staff, parents, community members, and dedicated school board members.

Please call me with any suggestions, concerns, or input that you may have. My door is always open!
