I am the Dean of Students at DeLay Middle School in Lewisville, Texas. In 2018, I was an Einstein Fellow on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Before moving to Texas, I taught special education and ELL high school math in Norman, Oklahoma where I was also selected as the 2016 Oklahoma Teacher of the Year and National Teacher of the Year Finalist.
