    About Me:

    I have been in Education for 34 years and at Whispering Pines Elementary for 21 of those years.  I have coached and taught at the College, Junior College, High School, Middle School and Elementary level.  I was a college softball coach for 8 years.  I have two wonderful daughters and I am married to my best friend.  I love to walk, workout read, and play games on my phone .I love my job and love coming to work every day.  My favorite part of my job is the relationships I build with students and parents.

    PE Expectations, Grading, and Dress Code


    • All students will be actively engaged in a safe, respectful, and responsible learning environment inside the gym and outside on the pavilion, playground, and track (and our new gym when it opens!) 


    • Grades will be determined by your child’s participation and attitude. Clothing that allows for movement and proper footwear is highly recommended on PE days (NO Crocs, sandals, wheelies, or flip flops are allowed).

    • If your child cannot participate due to an illness or injury please send a note from home to be given to their homeroom teacher first thing in the morning and a copy will be made by the nurse and given to the PE teacher. (Please note that a parent note is good for 3 consecutive days of non participation, after that, a doctor’s note is required as stated in the Humble ISD Student Handbook)
