Welcome to a new school year at Elkhart High School. This is my fifteenth year at Elkhart, and my seventeenth year teaching high school. I graduated from Tyler Junior College and Stephen F. Austin State University, with my AAS in Land Surveying and Mapping and a Bachelor of Science in Forestry respectively. In May of 2013 I graduated from the University of Texas – Arlington with a Master’s in Education. I obtained my teacher’s certificate after completing an alternative certification program with the Region 7 Education Service Center in Kilgore including six hours of graduate level coursework from the University of Texas at Tyler. I completed additional AP US History training through the College Board and UT Tyler.
