This is my 1st official year teaching at the Elementary School level. I taught at a Private Preschool for 5 years before coming to Canton. I was a Special Education Aide at Canton Elementary for two years while working on my degree.
I love early childhood development, teaching life skills, ESL, and early reading. Im big on hands on and visual learning. I love using technology in the classroom when ever i can. I love teaching PreK because every is new and exciting and they are eager to learn. PreK is so important because it sets the bar for their entire educational career. If they love coming to school and learning in PreK they will continue to love learning throughout their life.
Teacher of the month September 2015 at Canton Elementary School. Noticed for being in the top 10% fun classrooms to observe by Texas Teachers.
I have a bachelors degree in business from the University of Texas at Tyler. I am certified to teach EC-6 from Texas Teachers. I am currently working on my Certification in ESL and ADHD. I have over 120 hours in early childhood development training. I worked as a Special Education Aide for two years while working on my teaching certification.
I am a mother of two beautiful boys, I have been married 10 years to an amazing man who puts up with all of my crazy ideas and change of plans. We live on a 50 acre cattle ranch where we bale hay and raise cows. My oldest son has ADHD and is the reason i have such a passion for teaching and learning as much about this learning disability as i possibly can. He is smart and funny, energetic and loving. Thank goodness he has had great teachers who have always loved and supported him. My youngest son is 4 and in PreK (not with me) and he is often my guinea pig on new ideas i have for my classroom.
