Hello Medina!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 edition of Medina Elementary School!  This is my 15th year in education and my first year in Medina ISD.  I was previously the Educational Diagnostician at Junction ISD.  I am so pleased to be a part of this district and this campus.  Medina Elementary School has been routinely recognized for educational excellence.  Such recognition does not occur by chance.  It is a result of two things:  motivated students and dedicated staff members.

I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children.  We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met.  By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students, and engaging the community, Medina Elementary School will be recognized for educational excellence.

Remember it takes a village to raise a child; and I add it takes a very special school to educate them.  Please know I welcome your participation, support, and efforts, as they are greatly valued and appreciated.  We are in this together!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (830) 589-2731 or  Thank you for your support and it is my pleasure to serve this district, the community, and our most valuable assets, the children.
