The 2017-2018 school year marks my 11th year teaching. I've taught PreK, 1st, 3rd grade, and technology applications. This year I'm teaching 2nd grade.
Being awesome. I work hard to make my classroom a fun and safe learning environment. My students know that should always "do their best" and that their best is different from everybody else in the class...and that's ok. Each year my goals for my students is (1) to foster a love for literature, (2) teach them to learn from their mistakes, and most importantly (3) learn to love learning! "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." ~Walt Disney
I recently received the awesome award for excellence in awesomeness.
University of Texas at San Antonio 2002 - 2005 Schreiner University 2000 - 2002 San Antonio College 1997 - 1999
There is room to improve in all areas of life and even though I'm already pretty awesome I work to improve my awesomeness. I love looking for new ideas and finding different ways to do things.
