I am the dance teacher at Roberts MS and one of three dance teachers at Fulshear HS. I am also the Fulshear Storm Dance Team coach at CFHS. I have been a dance educator in the public school system since 2002. I began my career at Westfield HS in Spring ISD, then taught at Bush HS in Ft. Bend ISD and Lamar Consolidated HS in LCISD. I was the dance teacher at both Leaman JH & Fulshear HS when the purple track opened in 2016 but am now one of two dance educators in the Purple Track. I received my BS at the University of Houston where I majored in Health and minored in Dance. I am a member of the Texas Dance Educator Association (TDEA) and am the TDEA DEAL Executive Administrator over the dance assessment program, DEAL (Dance Educators Assessment of Learning). I was the 2015 TDEA Director of the Year Finalist and the 2021 Fulshear Teacher of the Year.
I have been married for 21 years to my wonderful husband, Gene, and we have two amazing children, Zakary (19), who is a Class of 2022 graduate of CFHS and now a Cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and Meghan (16), who is a dancer on the Fulshear Storm Dance Team. We are a PROUD Charger & Army family!!
I am a coach because...
...I am a coach because of the kids and the passion I have for dance itself. There is no other feeling quite like helping young dancers further develop their natural persistence, determination, discipline, dedication, resilience, work ethic, heart, leadership skills, connection with, and respect for others, not only in competition, but in life!
