What year did you graduate?


 What do you teach? What do you coach?

 Kindergarten PE/ Freshman girls basketball and Asst. softball

Highlight a fond memory or two that you have from high school.

One of my favorite memories is my junior year softball season. Our team was incredibly close, and win or lose, we were always having a blast. Another great memory of mine is football season. I absolutely loved pep rallies. I was a part of the choir, and we sang the school song in the hallways of BHS every Friday. I simply loved the Friday night lights and cheering for our boys in the student section.

What motivated you to become a teacher?

I have always loved working with kids and I had a couple of teachers/ coaches that really changed my life. I knew I could get in a few certain classrooms along with the softball field every day and have a teacher/ coach that believed in me more than I believed in myself.  I worked in student ministry every summer that I was in college and I absolutely loved it. Those kids changed my life and it really gave me confirmation that I wanted to be a teacher/ coach. I want kids to feel like they have a safe place around me. I most definitely had that at BHS.  

Tell about how you feel being back at BHS
It is very exciting. Although I am at Paul Belton during the day, I love being around high school sports again in the afternoon. Just walking in the gym, or hearing the band play “Roll on to Victory,” so many great memories come flooding back and I feel so proud to be back. 

How have things changed?

Personally, I know I have grown and changed as a person since I have graduated. When it comes to school and sport, there are a lot of different teachers/ coaches, but a lot is still the same.

What are you most excited about for this year?

I am so excited to return to the softball field. I played all four years under Coach Watkins, and now I am going to get to coach with him. Softball was a huge highlight of my high school days, and to be able to return is just a huge blessing.  I am so grateful to be back. Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog.
