Staff Spotlight

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

That’s easy, Texas. It’s a wonderful place with beautiful scenery, giving me all four seasons.

What is your biggest fear?

My biggest fear has already taken place. I lost my mother some years back. Now, it’s just fear itself. It’s the unknown (scary).

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life. What would it be?

Definitely, my wife’s enchiladas’.

List 1 pet peeve?

At the moment, my wife taking my car keys when she can’t find hers.

What song would you sing at Karaoke night?

That’s tough. I don’t sing in public, or lets say, I WON’T… Being a team player, something James Brown…

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

My son without a doubt. He knows me like a book. That’s scary.

Do you collect anything?

Well according to my wife, I’m a hoarder? I don’t, but I like to paint.

If you could take three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be?

Wow! I wouldn’t want to leave my family behind. So, some type of weapon, lighter, and a boat.

If you had a warning label, what would your say?

Handle with Extreme Care!

How many years have you been in education?

13+ years

How many years have you been in LISD?


The Week Ahead...

Community Support...

The Junior World Affairs Council in conjunction with the National Honor Society will be holding a food drive next week October 5-8 for the Lewisville CCA Food Bank. Items needed include canned goods, Hamburger Helper, rice, beans, and tuna, but any donation would be greatly appreciated, since they are at a record low in supplies. Please bring all items to room 1502 by Friday October 9th, I will be delivering to the food bank that afternoon.

F5 and FFTV Time...

Please make sure Tuesday and Thursday is designated for Farmer 5 time and Wednesday is Fighting Farmer TV (FFTV) - from 11:20 - 11:40. Educator and student attention must be focused on the lessons/activities, etc during this time...thank you for your understanding!


Please do not forget to use the #HarmonPL if and when you are on Twitter and you view great information that relates to strong instructional practices, content, inspirational, etc...if you think others would like to see it - tag it using the # to share with the rest of our staff. Using #HarmonPL builds an electronic professional learning library for all of us!


If you use a common area (Lecture Hall, Think Spot, Library, etc) for a dept./team meeting or to conduct class. If you are using the Lecture Hall, please make sure the whiteboard is wiped clean as well. Please make sure you leave the area clean and organized.
