I have been an advocate of education for children in the southern sector of Dallas County for many years. As a teacher in the Lancaster Independent School District since 2004, I have worked many arduous hours to ensure that no child in my community, the community where I currently reside, and where I grew up in as a child, is left behind. Currently, I have the distinct honor of serving as a gifted and talented educator for Lancaster ISD's Exploration Academy. I am responsible for challenging gifted students to think critically, work collaboratively and reach their highest potential as a scholar and as a citizen. The Exploration Academy places a strong emphasis on the development of 21st century skills such as technology literacy, research, problem solving and creativity. My personal goal is to ensure that each student's unique needs as a gifted learner is met.
