Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to another school year! I look forward to working with students, parents, and other educators to make this school year exceptional. I am a graduate of S.W.T.S.U., now dubbed Texas State University at San Marcos, where I received my B.A. in Liberal Arts with a major in English and teaching certification. Additionally, I received my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Sul Ross State University in 2017.
I grew up in Lockhart, Texas, and married my neighborhood sweetheart, Kelly Parker. We are a football family, having taught in the communities of Lockhart, Del Rio, Paris, and Hutto. We joined the Wimberley Texan family in 2012, and our daughter Kacey graduated from WHS in 2017 and is currently attending Texas State University. Additionally, our daughter Gabby graduated from Texas State University and is currently living in Austin, Texas.
I have taught English for twenty years, and this year I will begin my twenty-second year in education. I continue to see each year as a new experience filled with possibilities. My objective in the classroom is to give young adults the confidence to challenge themselves, preparing them for high school graduation and beyond.
I truly enjoy teaching high school students because of their endless potential; each day becomes an opportunity to create a path to success. Join me on our journey in making Wimberley High School, and room 229, the best place to learn!
