This will be my seventh year here at Lovejoy teaching STEM courses and coaching soccer. I feel so lucky to be a part of this community and to start my teaching and coaching career here in 2012. I grew up in Grapevine, Texas, where I graduated from Colleyville Heritage High School in 2005. I received my undergraduate degree in 2009 from Austin College in Sherman, Texas, where I also played soccer for four years. In 2011, I received my Masters in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas. In addition to teaching here at Willow Springs, I am the head girls soccer coach at the high school. I teach and coach because it is what I am most passionate about and I love mentoring young men and women.
