I have been teaching since August 1998. I've taught in 4 states/US territories such as Texas, Virginia, Arizona, and Guam. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades with my longest experience in 1st grade (which is my favorite!).
I love to teach reading! Of course, I also teach all subjects since I teach first graders. We do a lot of small group instructed that is differentiated to student ability levels.
I am honored every day when I greet my students at the door. I am content with a smile and good morning greeting.
I graduated from Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, TX in December 1998, with a Bachelor's in Science-Interdisciplinary Studies. I have my Master's degree from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ; my degree is in Curriculum & Instruction-Reading.
I am married to a Navy sailor. I have two awesome daughters. We have two cats and dogs as well.
