I took an indirect path to the classroom. And for the first 5 years in the there I fought my love for it. It wasn’t until a trip to Africa and saw with my own eyes the power of education. Came back determined to teach and to find other ways to be able to afford my passion.
I originally found my home in a classroom in 1999. Initially, I thought I was meant to mold the minds of high schoolers, but I have since found where the party begins- middle school. I have taught a little bit of everything: World Cultures, Texas history (yes it is a real subject), US history, Economics, Government and World History.

What it looks like?
I have always been most comfortable with my students working in peer teams solving a problem or collaborating on a project together. There are so many unintended lessons that they can learn from each other when they are allowed to discuss and solve.
