TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 5th grade since 2002, and I LOVE teaching American History! I have also taught math and reading, but social studies is my favorite.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am very hands-on, and strongly believe in creating an environment that is exciting to all five senses of the body. My room frequently and dramatically changes as we work our way through American history. I try to keep my students on their toes...keep them guessing as to what's going to happen next time.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

GISD Teacher of the Year 2011

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I lived my whole life in Georgetown, Texas except for the four years I was in Denton, Texas where I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2002 with a degree in education grades 1-8. I also have been trained as a History Alive coach.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Walburg, Texas, just down the road from Georgetown, and teach at Cooper Elementary. I have been blessed to be able to be departmentalized and just teach social studies for the past three years. I have been married since 2004 to my all-time crush, J.C. The verse that continues to speak to me, and I would like to share with you is Psalm 28:7, "The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him with song."
