I have 30 years experience teaching elementary school and private tutoring.. My 22 years in Fort Bend ISD include all grade levels ELA and Social Studies, Reading Recovery and ESL inclusion. I also worked for one year as a reading enrichment teacher for a private school.
I encourage my students to think beyond the curriculum and dream beyond their experiences. My instructional day includes whole group, small groups, literacy groups, and individual instruction. The students are surrounded in literature, work stations, positive quotes, and enrichment activities. Respect for each other is demonstrated as the kids participate in discussions, conference with each other, work in their groups, or conference with the teacher.
I have been the recipient of the "Excellence In Education" award for my district twice. I have been nominated for "Teacher of the Year" twice. I have been awarded "Teacher of the Month."
