I graduated from Paul H. Pewitt High School in 1985.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from University of North Texas in Denton, Texas in 1989
I earned a Bachelor’s of Science and a Master’s of Education simultaneously from UNT. I completed an additional 18 hours in graduate level English at Texas A&M University-Commerce in order to provide instruction at the collegiate level.
I am certified to teach English 1-8 and 6-12 as well as collegiate.
I also have life earth science, all level physical education, gifted and talented, and ESL certification.
This is my third year back at Pewitt where I attended school throughout my grade school and high school years. I am in my 32nd year of education,25 in English and 21 in high school English. I am providing Face to Face dual credit English through Northeast Texas Community College for ENGL 1301, 1302, 2322 and 2323. I am also teaching English II and honors English II.
Previously, I taught seventh grade science at Pewitt Junior High. Prior to that, I have taught and coached at Pittsburg High School, Fruitvale High School, Grand Saline High School, Buffalo High School, Royse CIty Middle School, Edgewood High School, Fairfield Elementary School and Refugio High School.
I married Ron Shaw in 1989. We are the parents of three daughters and grandparents to two grandsons and a granddaughter.
While I do not have any pets currently, I am the proud grandparent to Chester!
I have recently stepped out of coaching. In my spare time, I am a voracious reader and run a seasonal plant business with my husband.
