Coleman Elementary is a fantastic place to be! I am so fortunate to continue this amazing journey with our incredible staff, students, and families.  

At Coleman, we will continue building a school that fosters innovation and creativity in our students while empowering them to have a voice and choice in their education. We will encourage and motivate our campus community to build lasting relationships that will empower our learners to reach their maximum academic potential.   Most importantly, we have created a culture that honors relationships and inspires all of our students to be JCE Strong!

I am excited to start my 16th year in Education.   I have been with Midlothian ISD for 8 years.  I graduated from Oklahoma State University with my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and graduated from Texas Woman’s University with my Master in Educational Administration.  I have four children Drew 18, Beau 15, Delaney 13, and Brynn 11.  My boys attend Midlothian High School, and my girls  attend Dieterich Middle School. I have been married for 20 years to my husband, Doug.  Doug is the Head Football Coach at Midlothian High School.  

We are MISD Proud!!
