About Me

I am running for the Texas State Board of Education’s 5th District and I would appreciate your support.  District 5 includes Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, Gillespie, Guadalupe, Hays, Kendall, Llano, and parts of Bell, Bexar and Travis counties. I have taught English and film for 28 years at Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State University) in San Marcos, the seat of Hays County.
I’ve served on Planning and Zoning, Solid Waste, and Blue Ribbon Bond Commissions, and on the president’s cabinet at Texas State University. I’ve been president, secretary, and treasurer of our homeowner’s association and on our council of neighborhoods association.
Our two daughters attended San Marcos ISD, where I volunteered for gifted and talented programs and worked as an educational consultant in numerous teacher workshops sponsored by the Texas Committee for the Humanities.
As a teacher and a parent, I know education from the ground up, and I have a passionate belief in the value of public education as the bedrock of our democracy. An educated citizenry is essential to a thriving economy and a healthy society.
