Principal's Message

I am honored to be the principal at Lockhart Junior High School. I am excited to be
rejoining a campus where I taught, coached, and was an assistant principal. During my
time at Lockhart Junior High, we experienced a great deal of success. My vision is that
as a campus we will demonstrate a commitment to high academic standards in an
environment where all students feel safe, and valued.

My educational journey started at Lockhart ISD.  I am proud to say that I am a graduate of Lockhart High School and was a student in Lockhart ISD grades K-12th .
I have 29 years of experience in education. As a teacher, I taught a variety of grade
levels and subjects. I have seen students' first years in the educational environment at an Early Childhood Center. I have taught elementary, and middle school. I also had the privilege to coach high school student-athletes. I truly believe that all of these various experiences in education have led me to this new and exciting opportunity and I cannot wait to begin!
I have a strong desire to ensure that Lockhart Junior High is a campus that not only
excels in educating students, but is also a campus in which students, families, and staff
feel welcome and appreciated. There is power in a positive school and home
connection. I believe EVERY student can learn and achieve success. As educators, it is
our responsibility to instill a love for learning.

I look forward to working with parents and with a supportive community to ensure that our students at LJHS have the best opportunity for success. Please join me in being Locked on Excellence for our students!

My why for being here at LJHS is student success!
