Hello! This is my 19th year at CISD. All of them in the DAEP program and for the last 5 years I am proud to say I've been a part of the Columbus Alternative School. The old saying goes, "Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life" I think this describes my career in Education. I have met the most interesting, fun and inspiring students who have taught me as much or more than I ever hoped to teach them. The Alternative School has opened up a whole world to me of student struggles and more importantly the way they overcome and succeed. I am fully supported in my passion by my loving husband, who is a tremendous teacher and coach and here at CISD. We have four beautiful and successful daughters, all products of CISD.
