    Welcome 
     
    I am excited to begin my third year here in Iowa Park! I grew up in a small town in the northeast part of the state, Mineola, Texas. Before moving into administration, I taught Spanish I, II, III, & IV. I have worked in Whitehouse, Winona, Navasota, and now Iowa Park, TX.  I have been an administrator at all grade levels, PK-12 and have loved them all! I am looking forward to another great year here in Iowa Park. I truly believe that IPHS is a special campus with amazing students, fantastic staff, and wonderfully supportive and involved parents!! 
     
     
     
    About Me   
     
    My husband and I have been married for 36 years. He is the Deputy Superintendent at Burkburnett ISD. We have 3 grown children and (even more importantly!) 7 granddaughters. Our oldest, Derek, and his family live in Birmingham where he is a pulmonologist and assistant professor at the University of Birmingham- Medical School. They have 3 daughters. Our middle daughter, Krista and her husband live in Beacon, NY and have adopted 2 girls. Our youngest daughter, Courtney and her husband, live in Burkburnett, TX and also have 2 daughters, as well. It goes without saying that they are the smartest, loveliest, and sweetest granddaughters!  :) Most of our ‘free’ time is spent visiting granddaughters (and their parents). I also like reading, occasional fishing, and riding motorcycles and bikes.
