I am currently a 5th grade teacher in the Longview Independent School District. I am completing my 13th year of teaching and I have taught 5th grade all years with the exception of one year. They say it takes a "special" person to teach 5th grade and so I take that as a compliment!
I love hands on activities! I am a visual learner and I have found myself doing my lessons as if I am the student. I am always doing some sort of visual so that my students can actually grasp the concept being taught. With work in cooperative groups and we always make sure that we are creating the best learning community that we can. I love hands on activities and I just enjoy having a fun Math class. Learning should be educational but yet fun and exciting.

I have two children who are my motivation to keep going when I want to give up. My 14 year son's name is Tyrin and my precious 4 year old daughter is Kennadi Samone. I enjoy traveling with my son and all of his sporting events and if there is any spare time, I love crafting!
