For the first three years of my career, I worked at an inner-city school in Houston, Texas. My first year of teaching I taught fourth grade. I looped up with those students. After they went to middle school, I remained in fifth grade. I loved teaching reading and writing. I am now in Austin, Texas and back with fourth graders in a self-contained classroom. I love teaching my students and learning from them.
Learning should be interactive, hands-on, and conversation based.

I graduated from Concordia University Texas with a degree in Elementary Education.
