The school health program exists because our community cares about thehealth of its children. The purpose of the school is to educate. Students cannot achieve at their highest potential – sometimes they cannot learn at all – if they have health needs which are not being met.
The primary focus of school nursing is to make sure learning is not hindered by a correctable health problem and to help educate students toward worthwhile decisions affecting present and futurephysical, social and emotional health.
Our goal must be to educate students toward a high level of “wellness”. Many of our present and future health
problems can be prevented through learning the proper care of mind and body. Our task is to assist administrators, teachers, and all other support personnel in helping each student achieve his or her
optimum potential in a comfortable, caring school climate.
I am the proud nurse for Sheldon Elementary School where I have been honored to care for the children for the past 8 years. I have been a nurse for 18 years and I have worked in the US Army Reserve & Army National Guard as a Medic, with family practice and OB/GYN. I grew up in Channelviewand have been blessed to travel the world, but I have been lucky enough to settle down with my little family back here in Texas. I have two beautiful girls, and a wonderful, supportive husband.
My hobby is photography and traveling. I love taking pictures of children and seniors and watching their little faces as they prepare to meet new
challenges in their lives. I am honored to be a part of so many lives and hope that I can make a small difference in your child's life.
