My education experience began as a teachers aide for 4 years. Then I finally had my own room and I became the "TEACHER" like my first graders would call me. Ahhh, my first years, memories. Following 4 years in second grade which I totally loved and secretly wish I was still there. After that I have been these last 2 years in third grade which makes me more open to newer ideas in my teaching career that enable me to create unique products that will enable students success..
My teaching style I would say is more geared to collaborative group work. Allowing my students to learn from one and another.
I have been nominated 3 consecutive years as the teacher of the year at our campus and won last year.
My education history is I attended University of Saint Mary in San Antonio, Texas. I am currently attempting to finish my masters degree in reading, hopefully next year.
I am married with 3 beautiful children. (two girls and a boy)
