I am lucky enough to get to teach in the same district that I grew up in and it is an amazing feeling, like you are with your family. I have taught third grade for two years. Then I moved to second grade, where I feel like I was meant to be. I absolutely love teaching second grade!
I am a firm believer in teaching children to set high standards for themselves, just as I have for them. I am a very structured teacher, which is something that I feel kids strive for. My motto in teaching is: consistency is key!
I was nominated for teacher of the year in my school for the past two years. However, the biggest honor is watching my children grow and knowing that I am a part of their growth!
I graduated from Texas Woman's University, where I feel I had an amazing education and learned from incredible professors.
I love being with my family. I have a wonderful husband, Josh, who supports me in everything I do. The light of my life is my son Jasper Wayne, who I love more and more every single day! Visit my blog The Drake Dudes at http://thedrakedudes.blogspot.com/
