I am the Instructional Specialist at THJ. My job is to support the teachers and facilitate job embedded learning that improves instructional practices. I provide resources to the instructional staff, assist in data analysis, model teaching lessons, and offer observations with feedback among many other things. A large portion of my job is accomplished in one one one conversations with teachers on a day to day basis. 

I have been in education for 21 years and have taught 3rd grade, 1st grade and kindergarten. Most of my experience is in kindergarten. I have taught in Oklahoma and Texas. This will be my third year as an instructional coach.


I received my Early Childhood Generalist National Board Certification in 2008 and I recently obtained my Masters in Learning & Technology.


I have been married to my best friend for 15 years. Our family also includes two grown children, a grandson, two cats, and a dog. I love to read, travel, walk the trails near my house, ride my bike, and binge on Netflix.
