In 2019 I was fortunate to begin serving Beard as the math specialist and moved to the role of GT specialist in 2021.
Since obtaining my undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Abilene Christian University and earning my master's in Educational Administration from Lamar University, I have aspired to be a servant leader.
