I am elated to serve for the fifth year as the Proud Principal at Dripping Springs Elementary! I also had the opportunity to serve as the Assistant Principal at Walnut Springs for six years. We have an amazing community!
I began my teaching career in Austin ISD at Cunningham Elementary in 2003 teaching first grade. I continued my education journey in 2006 teaching third grade at Dripping Springs Elementary and at Rooster Springs Elementary.
I believe in transformational leadership and in goal setting to accomplish great things! All teachers and students can achieve greatness and it is my role to enable greatness in people everywhere! The children are the purpose behind my career as an administrator. Education is one of the most rewarding careers because we witness student and staff achievement and growth every day.
I am a proud wife and mother to three children. Kasey is a Senior in College at the University of Oklahoma. Curt is a Sophomore in college at Cornell University where he plays football for the Big Red. Our youngest, Kylar, is a Senior at Dripping Springs High School. My husband and I love watching our children participate and compete in sports: volleyball, swim, basketball, baseball, and football. I love running and staying fit in order to "sharpen my saw", and I am an 8-year cancer survivor. Most importantly, I AM A LIFE CHANGER and A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTOR.

I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year! There are a lot of great things planned for our students, staff and the community and I can hardly wait!
I started my journey in education in 2005 after graduating from Texas State University with my Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Math. I taught high school Spanish for 10 years before beginning my role as an administrator. I also coached cheerleading, swimming and even bowling! I completed my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership in 2013 (also from Texas State- Go Bobcats!) and for the last four years I have had the opportunity to work with elementary students in administration and have enjoyed every minute!
The rewards I have received in my last 14 years of education for serving children have been countless. Working with kids is such an honor and I could not imagine any other profession. I truly feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with young minds every day. It is a passion of mine and I am so excited to share that joy with each of you again next year!
My husband and I have two beautiful children, Chance-6 and Colby-2. They definitely keep our spirits joyful and our lives busy! We enjoy spending time with family, going camping, competing in sports and being outside.
Let’s make it a great year!
