2020-2021 marks my 19th year at Thrall High School and I have never been more proud to be a Tiger! My journey to become an educator started in 1989 when I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Agriculture Journalism. My work as a newspaper and magazine journalist lead me into the burgeoning world of desktop publishing and graphic design and eventually to my true calling in the classroom. After teaching journalism, multimedia, photography, and video production at Leander and Crandall High Schools, I got a phone call that Thrall was looking for a yearbook adviser. So here I am!
Our school may be “small”, but our students have the same talent and potential found on any 6A campus. With this in mind, I encourage my students to think big and they rise to the challenge. The yearbook staff produces a book that has been recognized among the best in the state by the UIL and Balfour Publishing. Graphic Design students consistently win art shows and design contests on local and state-wide levels.
