I have taught for several years in the public school system. I have also taught in non-traditional settings including private classes through Parks and Recreation.
I love creative thinking. I am not a huge fan of cookie cutter teaching that does not give the student a chance to think for themselves.
Invited by NASA to the Middle School Aerospace Scholars Program.
I will be a perpetual student all my life because isn't life just one giant teaching opportunity.
I live and LOVE West Texas! I have very different and totally unique children of my own. I have learned that the smartest kids can be the most delicate and the energy infused average learning can be the most creative thinker! I am blessed to have each type of learner in my world at home to help me become a better teacher every day!
