Welcome to CHS! I am the Chair for the Science Department and teach Chemistry and Pre-AP Chemistry. I will also be serving as the Academic UIL Coordinator, UIL Science Sponsor and Science Club Sponsor for this year.
I graduated with a BS in Biology and an MS in Forestry from Stephen F. Austin State University where I met my husband (ask me about how we met in a tree). He is the Refuge Manager at Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge in Eagle Lake. We recently celebrated our 30th anniversary this past summer, and plan to take a trip to Alaska once the pandemic has settled down!
We have three children (all of whom graduated from CHS). Amanda is the Marketing Director of the Texas History Museum (Bob Bullock Museum) in Austin and married to Michael Strittmatter of Florida. Adam is a Police Office with the Arvada Police Department (a suburb of Denver) and Allison is a junior at St. Mary's University in San Antonio as a theology major.
I enjoy reading (science fiction and mystery/psychological thrillers) and fishing with my husband.
