I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where I attended Skyline High School. After receiving my Bachelors from The University of Texas - Arlington, I later pursued a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M - Commerce.
Prior to joining Italy ISD in 2017, I taught and was an administrator at DeSoto ISD for 14 years. I taught 2nd grade self-contained and 5th grade Math. I spent 5 years helping to develop teacher's skill sets and co-teaching as the Master Math Teacher/Coach. Prior to joining Italy, I was an Assistant Principal who built strong relationships with students, families, staff, and community members.
I am certified in the following areas: EC-4 Generalist, 4-8 Math, ESL EC-8, Master Math Teacher EC-4, and Principal EC-12
I am married to Ty Bass. We have been married for 17 years. We have 3 wonderful children. Taylor who is 14, TJ who is 13, and little Tori who is 6. Our family spends lots of time attending the kids sporting events and participating in church activities.
If you haven't met me, I love to talk! I have never met a stranger.
I enjoy helping others, whether it be here at school or working in my local church.
Conversations are my way to get to know people and learn about them and their families. I look forward to making life-long relationships here at Stafford - where our students will benefit from our commitment to their success!
