I have taught for 9 years: 3 years in fourth, 2 year in second, 1 year in third, 1 year in fifth, and 2 years as instructional coordinator.
I absolutely LOVE being self-contained. I love designing activities and worksheets and materials that allow students to control their own learning environment. I also love to put as much control of the learning in the child's hands as possible.
I have been awarded many grants that have furthered my education and teaching abilities.
I have completed a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the University of Houston - Downtown.
I am married, working on a family, and doing canine agility with 2 Jack Russell terriers in my spare time while writing a children's novel.
