I have taught since August of 2000. This year I have taken on a new adventure of teaching Kindergarten. I taught fourth grade for one year and the rest of my experience has been in the first grade classroom. Kindergarten has been a joy, adventure and a completely new experience.
I enjoy giving students the opportunity to work not only independently but also in groups with a hands on approach. It is important that they have a chance to apply their learning. Incorporating high yield strategies has been a great way to engage students in their learning in a meaningful way.

I love spending time with family and friends. In my free time, I like to create products for my personal classroom that align with the TEKS and allow students to apply their new learning. I absolutely LOVE cooking for my family and friends using family recipes.
