"I love teaching at Texas State University because I have the opportunity to see my students grow into confident teachers. I enjoy being in our field settings and keeping up with what’s going on in our local school districts."
"I am originally from Oklahoma and grew up as the child of educators. We lived in several towns, as we followed my father’s career from being a football and track coach all the way to superintendent of schools. My mother was an English teacher so “school life” has always been the norm for me. I was blessed to have shared my childhood with my brother and sister.
"I teach classroom management and human development and learning theories. In addition to teaching courses, I also supervise interns and student teachers."
"I began working at Texas State in January of 2006."
