Welcome to the STEAM Academy!
I am so honored to introduce myself as the new STEAM Academy Principal at C. E. King High School. I believe all students deserve the best learning opportunities every day, and opportunities to prepare for their futures beyond high school. In the STEAM Academy, we help students graduate with an endorsement in STEM and/or Fine Arts. At C. E. King High School, we are ready to provide those opportunities to help your students soar!
This begins my 32nd year in education, all in Texas public schools in this area. After graduating from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Go CRU!), I started my career as an English teacher at both high school and middle school levels; then I moved into the AVID world, teaching and coordinating AVID in grades 7-12. I have taught at the college level after obtaining my Masters degree and National Board Certification for Teachers in Early Adolescence - English Language Arts. I became an instructional coach for all content areas at an Early College High School, and then became a high school Academic Dean with the privilege of starting a new STEM Academy. I am honored to be able to work with your students this year in the STEAM Academy. Our STEM program in Sheldon ISD is an incredible opportunity that changes students’ lives as they pursue a STEM endorsement. As a mother of two sons, I view your students as my own children and believe we owe it to our students to keep current in best educational practices in order to reach EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY. I believe that our students and teachers will rise to exceed all expectations, and their futures will be positively impacted to help them fulfill their dreams.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to an excellent school year!
