I have been an elementary school teacher for the past 9 years. I have taught 1st grade self-contained, 4th grade Math/Science and Reading and 5th grade reading. I have also tutored struggling students for several years.
I love teaching reading and writing. I love talking to students about books they are reading and how books influence them. I have always thought leading by example is the best way to get your students excited about reading.

I am a graduate of Texas State University at San Marcos and began teaching in Cypress Texas. I have 8 years of teaching experience in Cypress Fairbanks ISD, which is also the same district I attended as a child.
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl and used to play school growing up. I have always loved reading and so becoming a reading teacher is such a fun thing to do for me. I love reading new books and sharing them with my students.
