TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching elementary students since 1994. I've taught third grade for 16 years, and have been the librarian for a PreK-5 elementary school since 2009. I absolutely LOVE what I do!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I whole-heartedly believe that when it comes to teaching, you have to reach a child's heart first. Once you have established a sincere relationship with your students, their learning will naturally follow. I also believe it's vital to show students how much fun learning can be, and to connect their learning to the real world. I accomplished this by creating collaborative, multi-sensory units of study that gave my students an opportunity to use higher level thinking and problem solving skills. Our class motto was "Find your happy place!", and I strived every day to make sure that each student succeeded in this endeavor.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded several 3M Ingenuity Grants for over $13,000 that I used to purchase additional supplies for varying units such as: 2003-2004 = 3rd Grade Inventor’s Workshop for $1229.59 2004-2005 = Our Backyard Science Lab for $3500.00 2004-2005 = Soil, Plants, and Animals, Oh My! for $2000.00 2006-2007 = Math Stations for Learning for $3500.00 2007-2008 = Attracting Student Scientists for $3500.00

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. I also have a specialization in Reading, and a master's degree in Library Science from the University of North Texas.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have always been fascinated with literature, and reading was always one of my passions. Throughout the years, I accumulated quite a collection of novels or picture books that helped students understand concepts or skills. Over time, I began to realize that my passion for books needed a more thorough outlet, which led me to pursue my master's degree in LIbrary Science.
