I teach because it allows me to serve others to the best of my ability. I teach because when done right, it’s one of the hardest and most demanding jobs there is. I teach because it is my mission.

Print, cut, and laminate these cards for an easy way to group students in multiple ways. You can do partners by using the pairs such as "peanut butter and jelly", small groups by using star color, or two large groups by the green and blue border.

I created some taboo cards to use as a review for an introduction to biology course. I print them on different colored paper and laminate them so I'll have several sets. This allows students to play in small groups. I've now uploaded a zipfile.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have my composite certificate in secondary science and math. I've taught biology, chemistry, geoscience, and environmental science/systems. I also served as a curriculum director during the year I spent in Kenya, but my passion is to work within the classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to incorporate a little of everything in my teaching in order to reach each learning style. My goal is to teach them more than the set curriculum. I want my students to leave my room a better person.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've been teaching for ten years and I have been blessed to be named teacher of the month multiple times. The biggest honor of my teaching career is having been chosen by various top 15 graduates as their mentor.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Texas A&M University BA in Theatre with a minor in Chemistry Masters in Curriculum and Instruction

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a proud Aggie grad with a passion for teaching and making the world a better place, one child at a time. I believe in the quote by Paul Spear, "As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person."
