I have taught 3rd grade for 10 years and now I'm going on 4 years in 2nd grade. I really love what I do and I also love creating new activities and lessons to share with other teachers on TpT. It keeps my creative juices flowing and keeps me on my toes!
I like to use lots of hands-on activities and I try to make learning fun. I also take a personal interest in my students and what is going on in their lives. They often call me "mama" by mistake.
Notes, cards, and pictures from my students that say, "You are the best!"
I have a Bachelors of Marketing from Texas Tech University and a Masters in Education from Southwest Texas State University (now known as Texas State).
I am married and have one beautiful daughter. I was in retail for 22 years prior to teaching. It took me a while to find my true calling, teaching. I love teaching and I especially love reading.
