Degrees and Certifications:
I love what I do, and I love doing it in the Sherman Independent School District! I am the dyslexia therapist at Percy W. Neblett Elementary. I became a Certified Academic Language Therapist in June 2016 after completing my training at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, Texas. I graduated in 1991 from Southeastern Oklahoma State University with a BA in marketing. In 1995, I finished my studies at Texas A&M University in Commerce (then East Texas State University) and became an elementary teacher. I have been teaching for 24 years (4th grade and dyslexia therapy) - all of them in SISD.
I have been happily married for 27 years to Kristi, my high school sweetheart. She also works with dyslexic students in SISD. We have a 21 year old son named Harrison. I love traveling! My two favorite places in the world are Rocky Mountain National Park and Walt Disney World. I'm also a HUGE soccer fan. I've been an FC Dallas season ticket member since 2015 and try not to miss a single home match...Dallas 'Til I Die!
