    About Me:

    A Southern California native, I graduated with my BFA from California State University, Fullerton. My course of study was Studio Arts with an emphasis in Drawing and Painting.  In 2003, while working for Epson America, Inc. I made the move to the Austin area.  After spending 15 years in the software and hardware technology fields specializing in sales, marketing and strategic alliances, I transitioned to teaching and am Highly Qualified in both Special Education and Art Education by the State of Texas.  It is my belief that teaching is a calling and one of the most important goals one can devote themselves to.  I am honored to work with you and your children. 

     

    What is BCS? 

    Georgetown High School's BCS Program is a process for managing the behavior of students who are behaviorally at-risk and who have not responded to campus code of conduct interventions, classroom management strategies, or small-group interventions.

    • BCS provides individualized behavior education services to students with serious emotional or behavioral issues.

    • BCS teaches behavioral expectations primarily in mainstream settings.

    • BCS employs daily and weekly behavioral analysis to guide intervention using an FBA (Functional Behavior Assessment) approach.

    • BCS is an alternative to the levels-system approach to services for students.
     
     
    BCS staff provide consistent, ongoing support for students, work to reinforce replacement behaviors and motivate students via frequent supervision and by providing positive incentives that encourage growth. All intervention decisions are made by each student’s BCS team and are driven by a functional analysis of the student’s behavior supported by daily data collection.
     
    BCS is a collaborative effort by all key stakeholders in a student’s school life. Parents, administrators, the BCS staff, mainstream teachers, and others partner in their efforts to effectively support positive behavior change.
     
    As Case Manager for the BCS Program here at GHS my goal is to focus on individual student strengths while emphasizing the power and progress of even the smallest successes in growth.  It is my firm belief that High School completion is but the first step towards a life of accomplishment  and happiness for our students.
     

    I look forward to a great year of working with you and your children!
