• Hello Wildcats!!!  I am so excited to be the Principal of Kennedale Junior High School, where kids come first!  I have served as an Assistant Principal in Arlington ISD and Mansfield ISD. Before that, I was a school counselor in Mansfield ISD, and a teacher in Little Rock, AR. 

    I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, my Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, and my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Texas.

    Being a military brat, I had the privilege of living in several places.  This includes SHAPE, Belgium and Naples, Italy (where I graduated from high school).  Living in so many places has given me an appreciation, respect, and admiration of different people and cultures. 

    I look forward to working with our fantastic students, parents, and staff members.  I feel that if we all work together to create an environment in which learning can take place, then our student’s potential will be limitless!
