I have 24 years of teaching experience including self-contained 4th and 5th grade classes, music grades 1-5, high school, and departmentalized 6th grade science and social studies.
I use a student-centered approach and cooperative grouping. I'm an experienced co-teacher in an inclusive classroom (supporting academic diversity to both special and regular education students and providing all students access to grade level curriculum). I believe humor makes learning fun!
Nominated as campus Teacher of the Year in 2014.
I have a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies from West Texas A&M University.
Teaching is my passion! My husband is an educator and both of my sons highly value and appreciate their educations. My coteaching experience has taught me that children of varying academic abilities can and do learn. Set high expectations! Have fun!
