Vandegrift High School English Language Arts teacher,
29 years in education and 2 years in LISD
"After only two years of teaching and coaching in Leander ISD at Vandegrift High School, I have so many wonderful memories to take with me into retirement. I will specifically cherish the time I've had working with such passionate, caring, and dedicated professionals who made everyday at VHS enjoyable and rewarding. I will sincerely miss the daily interactions and relationships I've shared with our amazing faculty, especially the teachers in our rockin' English department, and the talented and inspiring coaches in our Lady Viper Basketball program and our Track and Field program. I've had an absolute blast being around so many hard working and fun people everyday! I also want to give a huge shout out to administrators Charlie Little, Drew Sanders, Jonathan Jones, and department head Kirsten Mulligan for hiring a "seasoned" teacher/coach to be a part of the Viper family. I will be forever grateful to each of them and appreciative of their servant leadership and support.
I am truly humbled and blessed to be retiring from my teaching and coaching career at Leander ISD and Vandegrift High School. Thank you to everyone who played a part in making my last two years in education my best two years!
