This is my 21st year working in education. For 19 years I was a classroom teacher where I mainly taught math. I've taught 2nd-5th, 7th and 8th grades, however most of my teaching experience has been in grades 3-5. I became a K-5 Math Coach last year and have been enjoying the new experiences!
I believe students learn best when they are physically, mentally, and emotionally engaged in the instruction or activity. I provide my students with challenging learning opportunities that are fun and allow movement. Whenever possible, I design activities that encourage students to construct their own learning.
I have received the honor of being named Teacher of the Year for my school. I was also selected as my district's Elementary Teacher of the Year.
College Degree: Elementary Education • Master's Degree: Masters of Education in Teacher Leadership • Certifications: 1-8 Self-Contained; 1-8 Math; ESL
I adore my two dogs and my newborn niece, Emma! I'm a huge Houston Texans fan and love football.
