Education

 It is with great appreciation and excitement to be the new Principal of Lakeview Elementary. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 12th year in Mabank ISD. I have previously had the opportunity to be our campus reading specialist for two years and our assistant principal for nine years. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Arlington Baptist College and my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington. I completed my Principal Certification in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University.

Campus Initiative for 2019-2020

My goal for our school year is to unlock academic and social potential in each child as we look towards having a growth mindset as our campus initiative for 2019-2020. We will be learning about what it means to look at each situation with a growth mindset vs. a fixed mindset.
