Wise Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School
  • I am very proud and excited to be a part of Wise Elementary Fine Arts Magnet. I believe in education!  After graduating from high school, I attended Texas A&M University in College Station where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science and Agriculture Education. I then began my career in education as an Agriculture Science Teacher at Edgewood ISD in East Texas. While working as an Agricultural Science Teacher, I pursued my Master of Science Degree at Texas A&M-Commerce where I graduated with a degree in Secondary and Higher Education. I then became an Assistant Principal at the secondary level in Edgewood ISD and later in Quinlan ISD. After 8 years in secondary, I became an Assistant Principal in Forney ISD at Johnson Elementary where I spent 5 wonderful years. At that time, I began my journey to obtain my doctorate degree from the University of North Texas.  While pursuing my doctorate degree, I spent 3 years as the Principal at Hallie Randall Elementary in Fruitvale ISD. In the summer of 2012, I became Principal at Crockett Elementary and spent 6 years in Greenville ISD.  I continued my education and in August 2013, I graduated with a Doctorate of Education in Educational Administration. I am beginning my 22 year in education and have loved every minute!

    My husband, Randy, and I live in Wills Point. My husband is an Agriculture Science Teacher at Edgewood High School with 25 years experience as an educator. We have two children. Sydney is our 16 year old daughter who is in 11th grade and Reese is our 13 year old son in 8th grade. Both of my kids are very active in our local FFA showing livestock.  We spend a lot of time with our families and going to livestock shows.

    I look forward to working with all the faculty, staff, students, and parents at Wise Elementary. My vision is that all students will have the opportunity to learn and succeed in life. Together we can make a difference for all of our students. This year will be a great year. If you ever need anything, please call the school, stop by our office, or email me.

    Have a wonderful year!
