Principal's Corner

Welcome to Jefferson Primary!


I am thankful for this opportunity to work at Jefferson Independent School District and know that amazing things will happen this year. First and foremost, I am a Jefferson Bulldog! I went to 5-12th grade in this district and believe in the students and staff in this educational system. After graduating from JHS in 2006, I went to the University of Texas in Tyler to complete my formal undergraduate education with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education. In 2013, I returned to the University of Texas in Tyler to work on and eventually earn my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Instruction. Since graduation I've worked in other area districts, teaching a variety of age ranges and filling teacher positions, Coordinator positions, and instructional coaching. When I became an administrator, I knew I wanted to come back to this district to serve the families just like mine. I truly believe that the education and experience in this district shaped my future and I want to be a part of shaping all of your children's futures as well.
