Area Superintendent of Stony Point Learning Community, Round Rock ISD

Mother. Military wife. Army veteran. Reading fanatic. …These are just a few things that describe who I am and the experiences I have had. Beyond these things though, an important aspect of who I am is my extreme love for schools and the power of an education. My first memory was my first day of school! I saw it as a magical place and knew in that moment I wanted to be a teacher. Working with students and educators is my dream fulfilled; every day my goal is to work with others to help create those magical moments for the students we serve. I am privileged to serve as the Area Superintendent of the Stony Point Learning Community and l look forward to working with all members of our community for the greater good of our students!
