This is my 24th  year in education. My 17th here at Lovejoy! I have taught in 5 states (AZ, OH, CO, CA and TX) everything from k-12!

I have been a teacher in Lovejoy since 2002, starting in 1st and 2nd at Lovejoy ES. I moved to theatre  in 2006 and I am happy to be "home".

My husband and I were HS sweethearts  ( we attended Booker T and Cistercian) and have been married for over 24 years, we have three children: Courtney (23), Alex (19) and Anna (18). Courtney is an Art Teacher in Lewisville, Alex is working with a master carpenter on home remodeling and cabinetry, and Anna is starting Paul Mitchell Academy for Cosmetology! We moved around with the Air Force for 7 years and now we are back home in the DFW metroplex with all of our siblings and parents. Many people know me by my father - Pastor Milton Guttierrez, he has been a pastor in Allen over 25 years! The students now just call him PAPA! 

We love movies, musicals and hanging out with our families. We enjoy travel and have recently been to Mexico, Boston, Disney World, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Arkansas, New Mexico,  and Colorado.

This summer I took 14 WSMS and LHS students to London and we had a blast!!!

I am excited that you are joining the WSMS theatre family!
