    I am so excited to serve as Coyote Ridge's Principal! I have been an educator in LISD for over 22 years, and I am thrilled to be one of many leaders here at CRE. I earned both my Bachelor of Science degree and Masters Degree in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas, with specializations in reading and leadership. Throughout my career in education, I taught 3rd and 4th grades at Hebron Valley Elementary, 3rd grade and MTA/Dyslexia Program at Degan Elementary, and served as Assistant Principal of Highland Village Elementary and Heritage Elementary. As Principal, I am rewarded daily with creative, energizing learning experiences throughout the building.  Coyote Ridge is a very special place to be!

    I have a wonderful, close-knit family. My husband, Tony, and I celebrated our 27th anniversary this year, and we have two beautiful daughters. Marisa is a recent graduate of The University of North Texas with a major in Merchandising, and Jamie is starting her college career at North Central Texas College with plans to join the US Navy. We love to spend time together, and you'll usually find us either at the movies, in the neighbors' yard at their pool, or relaxing at home. Frequently, I get to play with crafty things while the rest of my family enjoys the golf course! We also stay very busy with our three pups. Roxy is a 9-year-old Australian Shepherd, and Rico and Rizzo are two-year old German Shepherd siblings. Our home is quite entertaining with that wild bunch!


    I look forward to a great school year!

    Hello, Coyote Families.

    I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year!  We will continue our work on the 7 habits this year as we grow our students into leaders.  Be sure to ask your child about their leadership notebooks throughout the year.

    I am thrilled about beginning my sixth year as an assistant principal and my second year as AP at CRE! This marks my seventeenth year in Lewisville ISD.  During those seventeen years I have served as a classroom teacher at Indian Creek Elementary, school counselor at Central Elementary and assistant principal at Wellington Elementary and Coyote Ridge. 

    On a personal note, I am a proud mother of two children.  My son graduated from Hebron High School in 2015 and my daughter is enjoying her middle school days at Arbor Creek.  I truly believe our students are receiving a world class education in Lewisville ISD and I LOVE being part of it!
