I've been involved in Theatre Arts since I was in middle school. This is my 10 year teaching young scholars, which included American Sign Language and Theatre Arts. I graduated from high school in Smithville, Tx. and obtained my Bachelors of Fine Arts from Texas State University in San Marcos Tx. This is my first year at Manor New Tech High School but my 5th year in the district.
