3 years as a teacher's aid in 6th, 7th, 8th grades. 3 years as 6th grade keyboarding teacher. Now certified and beginning my 3rd year teaching 7th grade math.
I like to allow students to discover as much as they can on their own. While I do lecture at times, I prefer hands-on learning when possible. There is a place for partner, group, and independent work in my classes. I like to use technology including Google Classroom, Pear Deck and more for as much student interaction as possible.

I began my journey in TN. Marriage, children and life put those goals on hold. I continued as a transfer student to Texas Tech and completed a bachelors of arts degree in University Studies with Human Growth and Development, Human Resources, and English as my focus. Once graduated, I certified alternatively through ITeachTX. I'm certified with my Generalist 4-8 at this time.
I have 3 children of my own, 2 of which are currently in junior high. The oldest starts high school this year!
