New Leadership
Advocating for Teachers, Students, and Families 

Hey Ya'll

I'm a simple person. If I see a job that needs doing, I  do it. 

I'm a third generation East Austinite, and over the years I've seen the city change in many ways and the district along with it.  I attended Austin ISD schools  in the  '70s and '80s.  I know first hand the improvements that have been made and those that still need to occur.  I have been a Teacher, Department Chair, Instructional Coach, Tutor, and Vendor in the district. I've sat on Campus Advisory Councils (CAC), Parent Teacher Associations (PTA), and numerous other district committees including the Equity Advisory Committee (subcommittee Co-chair), but my  most important role to date in Austin ISD has been as a parent navigating both Special Education and Fine Arts/Magnet Programming.

Advocating for families, and teachers is my life's work. I split my time working for Austin Community College Teacher Certification Program, privately coaching new teachers, producing education explainer  videos, and co hosting an education podcast,  the Austin ISD ExOfficio Podcast .
