I've been teaching for 9 years. I've taught PK-7th Grade, except 1st and 7th. I teach in Texas and use the TEKS. For the most part, I've taught Reading and Reading Strategies. I have taught in a variety of school districts. My teaching career began in a rural district where I taught reading for an entire Junior High School. Then, I moved on to a suburban district where I had weekly parent volunteers and 2 room moms. Now, I teach in an urban district at a Title 1 School. I've been teaching at this school for 7 years. Currently, I'm a departmentalized Reading/Social Studies Teacher. I am also the LPAC Chair for ESL. At my school, many teachers look to me for creative lesson plans and/or our state assessment, STAAR prep.
My teaching style is to teach Texas TEKS with a creative touch. I try hard to differentiate my lessons so that all my students can learn and be successful. My store is definitely geared toward Upper Elementary Teachers. My goal is to provide teachers with easy prep centers and other activities. I like to get my students up, moving and talking.

I graduated from Texas Tech University and went on to own an Embroidery and Screen-Printing Business. We worked many trade shows and I was able to utilize my creativity through marketing. I enjoyed owning a company, but I felt drawn to teaching. Eventually, I went through alternative certification and became a teacher.
I also have a pre-schooler and often make products for her teacher.
