About Me:

Hello Bessie Coleman Theatre Scholars!

This is the beginning of my 7th year as an educator. I spent the first four years as an elementary music and computer teacher at a small private school, the next two years as the building assistant and fine arts director for an Early College High School and I am thrilled to be in my dream job here at Bessie Coleman Middle School as the Theatre Director!

I have been a part of the DFW theatre community for over 25 years serving as a director, choreographer, and performer. I have been featured in the Dallas Stars Education promo video, Ron Clark Academy Club RCA promo video, Title Boxing website and participated in a Dallas Cowboys halftime. Fun fact: In middle school, I played the flute and bassoon, played volleyball, and sang in the choir and I am appreicate that Bessie Coleman allows that same flexibility for its scholars.

“Life is like a play; it’s not the length but the excellence of the acting that matter.” I believe that every scholar not only has a story to bring to the classroom but has a story to tell the world. In our classroom it’s not about being the best but bringing your best and we promote unity in our differences. I look forward to seeing the scholars flex their creativity muscles and make meaningful theatre.  Humbled and blessed for this opportunity to serve as the Theatre Director here at Bessie Coleman where “It’s Great to Be a Longhorn, every day, all day!”
