I am so excited for this new school year and cannot wait to see all of the amazing things that the students here at Dickinson Elementary will accomplish in 2016-2017!

After graduating from The University of Texas at Tyler with a BS in Journalism and working in the corporate world, I embarked on a journey that would change my life! I began my educational career in 2008 at South Grand Prairie High School where I taught American Literature for seven years. From there, I moved into the teaching and learning department at the education center as a Secondary ELA Strategist, serving all secondary campuses within GPISD. While working as a district strategist, I completed my master’s degree in Education Administration through Lamar University.

And now, it is with great pleasure that I find myself at Dickinson Elementary with the opportunity to serve the students, families and staff as the Assistant Principal for the 2016-2017 school year.
