Currently, I am a 1st year teacher! I teach third grade inclusion/ESL classroom. I teach ALL subjects! Math, Science, ELAR, and S.S.
I am whole-heartedly about student-led learning and working collaboratively. Their creative thoughts bounce off one another and even more creative ideas spur out. I want students to connect the WHY they are learning the material and how it connects to the real-world, as opposed to the "sit-N-Get" method. I am a big advocate for technology in the classroom. I love to see my kids create using different forms of technology. As a teacher, I must be a teachable-teacher and willing to change at a moments notice to best meet the needs of all my students.

I attended Baylor University where I majored in Psychology and Rhetoric and Argumentation. While I was a senior at Baylor I had this aha moment that I wanted to teach. During my senior year at Baylor, I took classes AND went through alternative certification at Region 12 Education Service Center.
