I have been with Kerrville ISD for fourteen years. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies.
This year, I have moved to a new position as the Starkey Counselor. As the counselor, some of my responsibilities include guidance lessons in each classroom twice a month, group counseling (as needed), individual counseling (as needed), connecting families with community resources, and sponsoring Starkey's Student Council. I am here to support students, parents, and staff any way I can.
I have three precious kids and an amazing husband that I love spending time with. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, growing in my personal faith, expanding my "hobby farm", and learning about health and wellness.
The Texas Hill Country is the greatest place to live and work, and I am fortunate to be a part of an amazing community!
