    Principal's Bio
    Principal for Collier Elementary

    Greetings Everyone!

    Welcome back to an exciting new year at Collier School.  It is my privilege to serve at Collier School as Principal.   

    I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree from the University of Texas in San Antonio. Before coming to Collier, I taught Kindergarten for seven years and fourth grade for four years.  I started at Leal MS as an Assistant Principal for Discipline in 2007.  I am proud to say this is my twenty-third year with the Harlandale Independent School District. 

    When I am not at Collier, I am either spending precious time with my family or doing the things I love like gardening, traveling, cooking or reading.

    My goal is to ensure our students succeed in their academic experience at Collier, and that each student comes away with knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary to take on the next important phase of learning. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's education.
