I was born and raised in a small town called Humboldt, TN. I grew up playing the piano, basketball, softball, and was in the pit in the marching band. I have one younger sister and a brother-in-law. I went to college in Jackson, TN at Lambuth University and majored in Health and Human Performance while playing basketball for 3 years and a student assistant coach for one year.
I have two dogs. I have a 12-year-old Yorkie named Jabba and a 2-year-old Alaskan Malamute named Vincent Vega. I love going to the gym and working out, playing softball, and taking naps (not in that order J).
I got into teaching and coaching to make a difference in the lives of young people. It has become my life’s mission. I love seeing the daily growth in these young people and it makes my heart happy when they return years later to tell me about who they are. I want to make sure that I push them past what boundaries they think they have so that they can open up their unknown potential!
I grew up down the road in Deer Park with 3 older sisters and a younger brother. Ever since I was little, I was involved in sports, from playing volleyball with my older sisters (when I was not yet old enough to be on the team) to playing high school sports to managing the high school teams after my brain surgery (and could not play anymore). After overcoming many obstacles, I graduated high school and decided to become a teacher/coach so I could show as much compassion to my students/athletes as was shown to me.
I have been married for 2 ½ years and am really loving it. My husband is a high school History teacher in Deer Park.
I worked in Pasadena ISD for four years before coming to Lomax JH. I now teach Texas History and coach volleyball, basketball, and track. I really get a great feeling when an athlete successfully performs a skill they did not have before.
Greetings Lobo Nation!
It is my pleasure to serve as a coach this year! I love sports & I look forward to learning and growing along with you all as young student-athletes.
A little about me: I am a native of Fort Worth Texas & a graduate of the University of Houston - Downtown. I am a HUGE UH fan! Go Coogs! I am a mom of two, my daughter Eliason & my son Dedrick. I am proud of them both as they create their paths in life. I am also a 7th grade science teacher, of which I love to watch my students grow throughout the school year. In my spare time I love spending time with my family/friends, learning, watching sports or attending UH football games.
I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, the youngest of five kids, playing volleyball, soccer and track. I have been married for almost 22 years and have a 17 year old daughter and almost 14 year old son. We have two golden retrievers to round out our family. I love to read, travel, garden, hike, camp, and have experiences with my family. I have been a teacher/coach for thirteen years and I love building relationships with kids and helping them to develop skills and knowledge that will help them to be successful in life.
I grew up In La Porte,Tx, along with my brother, and attended school here from Jennie Reid elementary, to Baker, to La Porte Jr. High, and finally to La Porte High school. I am a 2012 graduate from the high school. I attended the University of Houston from which I graduated in 2016. Throughout the years I played baseball, basketball, and tennis. It is my love of sports and my great experiences with them that fueled my passion to become a coach.
I am a new teacher In the district. I was interested in becoming a teacher in La Porte because I feel that teaching is my true calling. So many educators in this city influenced me in such a positive and endearing way. My mother was an educator, my grandmother was an educator, and I would like to follow in their path and become a positive force in this world for another generation of kids. I chose Lomax Jr. High because of the wonderful experiences I had here as a sub during the 2017 to 2018 school year. The positive experiences came from one place: the kids. They were funny, smart, and very engaging, and it was a joy to come to Lomax each time I had an assignment.
