I am a Key Lead Teacher in my district. I teach Make and Take workshops for my district. I enjoy sharing my ideas and creativity.
I am a very visual and creative person. I have a son and find myself working well with the boys in my class. I have learned how they think. I like to get my students up and moving frequently. I enjoy letting my students discuss what they are learning and work together in partners or in groups. My classroom is often loud and a little messy, but my students love it and learn a lot!
I have been nominated for Teacher of the Year several times. I have recieved my five year pin in my disrict.
I have always loved teaching others and working with children. I even helped my teachers grade papers when I was young. I graduated from the University of Houston. I am certified in Early Education - 4th grade General Education, Special Education, Art, ESL and Gifted and Talented.
I live in the suburbs of Houston. I am happily married and have a beautiful son. I love my job because it is more than that. It is a passion.
