I attended South Plains College and Austin College, and earned a Master’s in Science Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington. Before coming to Accelerate Learning, I worked as a science instructional coach in Humble (Texas) Independent School District. There, I managed the science department at a middle school and also worked with the district curriculum team to ensure that the curriculum materials centered around current best practices. I also developed and presented professional development programs to large audiences. Before becoming an instructional coach, I taught eighth grade science for five years.
