This is my 5th year of teaching. I taught one year of 4th grade ELA/TX History/Science and 4 years of 5th ELAR/Social Studies (US History). Teaching is my passion and my goal is to share my love of reading and learning to each of my amazing students!
I believe cooperative groups and hands on activities are key to successful learning. I also like to include visuals as much as possible for my students because many of them have limited background experiences. I love to share my experiences with my kids as well and listen to their experiences. I provide many opportunities in my classroom for individual and group sharing through lesson activities, morning and dismissal routines, and group/individual projects.

I am a native Texan, married, and have two wonderful fur babies! Asia, my dog, is a rescue Pit Bull Terrier and a love bug and CiCi, my 8 month old kitten, loves to taunt her! I enjoy reading, listening to music, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends.
