I grew up in Franklin, TX where I played basketball, volleyball and tennis for my school. Upon graduation, I attended Oklahoma Christian University and graduated in 2016 as a Math Education major.
My first job was in Millsap, TX where I coached JV volleyball, basketball and tennis. After a year, I moved to Thorndale, TX where I was the JV volleyball and basketball coach, Jr High basketball coach and the Head Track coach. I have always taught Algebra 2 with the occasional extra prep (for example, I now teach Alg 2 along with Algebraic Reasoning). This is my 4th year to teach and coach.
I have two of the best parents to ever exist, Jerry and Whitney! I have an older sister who is married and gave me 2 very perfect nephews: Beau and Jax. All 6 people can be seen at the games often! They’re my biggest fans. I’m also a mom to Otis Laverne Paceley, a German shorthaired pointer mix. Even though I haven’t been here long, I’m so thankful to be a Katy Tiger!
