Here is a little background about myself. I grew up in Canyon, Texas and graduated from Canyon High School in 2001. Growing up I can remember I always liked math in school and that I was either going to be nurse or a math teacher. I then attended West Texas A&M University in Canyon and got a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in December of 2005. After I graduated, I was a math tutor at Bowie Middle School, in Amarillo, in the spring of 2006. They then had an opening for me to teach 7th grade math at Bowie for the 2006-2007 school year. I was there for one year and then got the opportunity to come teach at Boys Ranch, which I'm thankful for! My first year teaching here was 2007-2008, and I have been here ever since. It's crazy to think this will be my 12th year here; man how time flies!!
