Welcome, Panther Nation, where GRIT is not just a word but a way of life. I am honored and thrilled to lead KASE Academy, where our commitment to cultivating Gumption, Resilience, Integrity, and Tenacity drives every aspect of our educational journey. As a proud graduate of Lamar University, I have continually pursued learning and growth. My journey includes a Bachelor of Science in Family Consumer Science, a teaching certification through Texas Teachers, a Master of Education in School Counseling, and an Educational Leadership certification.

For the past 13 years, it has been my privilege to serve the students and community of Sheldon ISD. This year, our mission is unwavering – we aim for excellence in all we do, striving to empower our students to conquer academic challenges and emerge as prepared, whether for college or the workforce. Collaboration with our stakeholders will be key as we drive holistic student growth. My core focus remains on enabling every child's success and fostering a passion for continual learning.

As the principal, I'm dedicated to assisting students in overcoming obstacles, whether in academics, career, or their social and emotional development. At KASE Academy, we believe in fostering an environment where GRIT becomes the cornerstone of achievement, where challenges are seen as opportunities, and setbacks as lessons on the path to success. This academic year promises to be an incredible journey as we unite in our commitment to EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY, instilling the values of GRIT in every step forward. Together, let's embrace the challenges, celebrate the victories, and make this year remarkable through perseverance, growth, and success.

Here's to an inspiring and successful 23-24 school year.
