Magnolia West High School

Mobile Menu






I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your teen at Magnolia West High School!  My family and I relocated to Magnolia from my hometown in New Mexico.  Three years later, it is still so exciting and wonderful to be back in the Texas!


I earned my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from New Mexico State University, which is located in lovely Las Cruces, New Mexico.  I earned my Masters of Education Guidance and School Counseling from Texas State University, which is located in San Marcos, Texas (also known as San Marvelous).  I was a school counselor in Texas for six years prior to moving back to New Mexico.  I also was the gifted education facilitator at Deming High School in New Mexico.


Besides teaching at West, I am a UIL Academic Coach for Science and Social Studies.  If your Mustang is interested in competing in one of these areas, please contact me () or Jaime Tatum at 


Finally, I am very dedicated to helping students be successful and am a highly-qualified teacher in earth and life science and social studies.  My philosophy is that all students are gifted in some way and part of my job is to help them unwrap those gifts.   I feel school is a vessel to prepare students for life after high school.
