TEACHING EXPERIENCE

18 years experience teaching first grade in Houston area public schools

MY TEACHING STYLE

Making teaching meaningful and fun are two of my top priorities. In teaching Language Arts I emphasize the importance of "Word Power." I teach students that analyzing words in many different ways adds to their word power ability. We learn about men and women who have used word power to make the world a better place. Incorporating hands on activities such as handling and observing live ladybugs, flying kites, helping to care for a first grade garden, keep students energized, excited and eager to learn in first grade.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded, Young Educator of the year and Educator of the year awards while teaching at Lamar Elementary in the Houston Independent School District.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts in Education from Sam Houston State University Master of Arts in Education: Curriculum and Instruction from University of Houston Downtown

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a Christian. I am married to Daniel Horstman. We have three wonderful children; Benjamin, Elisabeth and Katherine.
