Director, School

Office: 830-257-0257

I have been affiliated with St. Peter's School since 1998. Back then, both of my daughters attended and I helped as a room mother and parent association volunteer. As an educator, I recognized that this school was an exceptional early childhood learning center offering small class sizes, NAEYC accreditation, a Christian environment, fun schoolwide traditions, tremendous family support and a long history of caring educators. The school continues to serve as an outreach into our community through its Scholarship Program. We are proud that we can offer financial support to children that might not otherwise attend a quality program. This plays an important role in young students' lives and lays an excellent foundation for their future.

Before working at St. Peter's, my background was as a Bank Manager/Assistant Vice President of Bank One, Texas. I came to this job with a substantial background in business management, staff development and leadership. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with my degree in Education. I also serve as an instructor for Alamo Colleges, teaching their Child Development Associates Course. Being a part of Alamo Colleges helps our school stay on top of the latest trends in our field and apply them in our classrooms. My personal teaching philosophy is every child has gifts and talents and as early childhood educators, we are in a unique position to help them have a positive experience and a "Best Beginning" to their education. Establishing a support structure between staff, families, administrators, Church and community helps to maximize the quality of our program.  Ultimately, that solid partnership will provide the foundation needed to contribute to all of our young students' future successes in school and life.
