Greetings Acton Family,

It is a pleasure to join the Acton Team and serve as campus Assistant Principal. I am joining Duncanville ISD with nine years of educational experience. I've taught 7th grade Math, Special Education, and 5th grade Science. Most recently, I served as a Title I Instructional Coach/Parental Involvement Liasion for four years.

At Acton Elementary, every day is game day! Our goal is to provide exceptional learning experiences for students that will encourage them to strive for excellence in everything they do. I am a firm believer that EVERY child has the ability to learn and grow. It is the leader's responsibility to ensure this happens every day, with every child.  My motto as a leader is, "Glow, Grow, Go!" In order to be our very best, we must shine daily, grow where we are planted and most importantly share our knowledge and skills with the greater community. It is my hope that the leaders of Acton Elementay with do just that and so much more!

I am so excited to grow with the students, staff and families of Acton Elementary.
