Oval Office


    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 #youwillsee
    I am obsessed with unsweet iced tea from Sonic, and Jolly Ranchers candy.  Just ask my former APUSHers...they know.  #everyday
    Students 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.  #beprepared
    I 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!
    Keep Calm
