It's a great day to be a CTHS Ranger! I am entering my 16th year of teaching, all of which have been in EM-S ISD. I've had the pleasure of teaching at Boswell High School and Ed Willkie Middle School, and am so excited to be beginning my 6th year as a member of the Chisholm Trail High School family. I teach AP U.S. History and serve as the Social Studies Department Instructional Leader. I am also an exam reader for College Board, evaluating and grading APUSH exams every June.I am a lifelong resident of Saginaw, Texas, graduate of Boswell High School, and graduate from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in history and political science and a minor in secondary education. I am married to Joe, a baseball coach and AP Physics 2 teacher, and am mom to two sweet boys, ages 11 and 6. We enjoy traveling as a family; the beach, historical sites, and Disney are some of our favorites places to visit!Nothing makes me laugh like a good meme. And I love hashtags. #justwait #youwillseeI am obsessed with unsweet iced tea from Sonic, and Jolly Ranchers candy. Just ask my former APUSHers...they know. #everydayStudents are usually surprised to learn that I love all kinds of music...seriously, all kinds. You never know when we will bust out in song. #bepreparedI LOVE teaching history! I seriously have the greatest occupation on the planet, and can't imagine doing anything else. Welcome to the wonderful journey that is APUSH!
