    Welcome to Education and Training! I’m very happy to be part of the Dale Jackson Career Center! Career classes are often taught by those who have first-hand knowledge of their industry.

    During this class, students will learn the fundamentals of being an instructional leader. Students who are wanting to be a teacher, coach, counselor, school administrator or any other education related career, would find this class very beneficial. We work hands on with professionals in these positions to better prepare our students for a career in education. During this class we learn Pregnancy through old age but primarily focus on school age children and how they learn.

    I graduated from Stephen F Austin with my Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Administration. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree through Angelo State University in School Counseling to bring more knowledge and skills to the students in the classroom. I have been with Lewisville ISD @ Dale Jackson Career Center since 2015. Prior to getting into education, I worked in the hotel industry at places like Omni Fort Worth, The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, and the Worthington Renaissance, Fort Worth. I am a proud mother of two boys and wife to a high school principal. I live in Burleson, Texas and drive to Lewisville each day because I love my students, the school and LISD. My passion for helping kids grow led me into the education world where I have found my calling. I have a passion for teaching and am excited to be able to pass on that passion to you in my class and give you a set of tools to help prepare you for a career in an education related field.
