Assistant Principal's Page (1)

Dear Bulldog Nation,


I am honored to serve as the Rice High School Assistant Principal for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 17th year at Rice ISD. Over the course of my journey as an educator, I have taught 3rd-5th grades and served as the special education teacher for grades 3-8.


I have three boys. The oldest two are RHS graduates, and the youngest is in 8th grade this year. My oldest son is the reason I made the move from my previous school district to Rice. As a parent, I wanted him to attend the best school district. I did my research and talked to a lot of

people. Not one person had a negative thing to say about Rice ISD. In August 2006, my son

started kindergarten, and I started my career at Rice Elementary as a 5th-grade self-contained

teacher. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made for my family.


I have been blessed to be part of a school district where parents/guardians, administrators,

teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support

academic and social growth. I am excited to join the high school community, see my previous

students/families, and get to know the new students/families. Please feel free to contact me

anytime you have any questions or concerns.


Go Bulldogs!
