Dusty loves Jesus, teaching, learning, and almost every sport (especially college basketball!). She is married to Adam, and they have 3 children at ACS: Anna, Mia, and Sam. After graduating from Angelo State University with a BA in English, she spent four years teaching high school English and coaching all manner of girls’ sports before leaving professional teaching for professional motherhood. Motherhood has given her ample opportunities to teach (and learn!), and she continues to teach any time she has the chance. In order to stay up-to-date on all things education, Dusty obtained her M.Ed. in Educational Leadership in 2012 from Texas State University.
Dusty had the original vision for a school like Austin Classical in central Austin, and she is honored to be the Head of School.
