PreK-12 ELAR Coordinator

Welcome to Lamesa ISD.  We are so excited you have chosen to be a part of this amazing community and school district.
 
I will be serving as the district's PreK-12 ELAR Curriculum Coordinator for the 2017-2018 school year as I joined the Lamesa ISD family in January of 2017.  This is my 24th year in education, 17 of those years spent at Lubbock ISD and 6 years at Lubbock-Cooper ISD.  I have been a classroom teacher and an instructional coach and look forward to serving Lamesa ISD as a curriculum coordinator.
 
My husband Tim and I have three children and four grandchildren that we love to spoil rotten.  I enjoy spending time at the lake with my family and watching anything Texas Tech does!!  
 
I look forward to the opportunity of leading the literacy initiative at Lamesa ISD.  Please let me know how I can be of service to you.
