       I am so excited about this school year and getting to work with your children!  I graduated from Joshua and returned here to work and live after graduating from T.C.U. I have taught elementary at JISD and been a counselor at LMS and JHS before becoming a counselor here at Staples.  I am married to Bryan and have two children, Ally & Will.  When I am not busy going to my kid's activities, I enjoy traveling, going to T.C.U. football games, watching movies, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends. 

    This year I will continue to visit all of the classrooms to teach guidance lessons dealing primarily with character traits and building skills to support character building. I will also bring students together in groups to work on a variety of topics and learn new skills.  I  am here to help all students with academic, personal/social concerns and any other problems that they may face.   Students are welcome to visit me on an as needed basis.  If parents wish for their child to see me more than once for a particular issue, a permission slip must be filled out.  Please feel free to e-mail or call me with any questions or concerns that you may have.
