I've loved teaching 7th and 8th grade for the last 6 years! I am a secondary teacher at heart and LOVE seeing the growth as students transition from elementary to high school. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I absolutely LOVE having fun in my classroom! I love creating and planning lessons that keep my students engaged and constantly learning! My classroom is typically a loud, crazy mess where I facilitate learning and encourage students to THINK.
I have had 1 Gold Scholastic Art Medalist at the National Level. I have had 3 Silver Scholastic Medalists at the National Level. I’ve received 2 Education Foundation Innovative Teaching Grants in back to back years. I had 25 students enter pieces into the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo this year (2017-2018), where 13 received 2nd place ribbons and 12 received 1st place ribbons. My students participate in YAM (Youth Art Month) each year! My students participate in Jr. Vase (The UIL for Art) each year with great achievements. This year 16 of my students earned Gold Medals and 1 earned Platinum, which is the State equivalent at the Jr. High level!
I received my bachelor's degree in education and have my master's degree in curriculum and instruction.
I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, and teacher! I absolutely love being a teacher and couldn't imagine having any other career. I enjoy getting to know my students. I love creating, and it’s never too late to create! Better Create, Than Never!
