Howdy y'all! I have over 20 years in the classroom, and I have loved creating lifelong relationships with my students. I have taught grades 2nd-6th and was even privileged to live in South Korea last year and teach English to blind students. And now I'm back living in South Korea with my husband! Love my life!
I am all about bringing fun and creativity to the classroom, using activities that engage my students from the very beginning. I've been known to be a goofy and silly and loud with my students, and I truly enjoy having fun with them while learning.
The awards from my students that mean the most - the letters from former students telling me what a difference I made in their life, the pictures my students make me, and the hugs at the end of the day because they know I truly love them. This is why I teach.
I have my Bachelors in Science from Texas A&M University. Gig 'em Aggies! I also have my Masters in Education from the University of Texas at Arlington.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. I've traveled to 46 countries, and I'm always thinking about my next trip. Once I got started, I got hooked. In fact, I am currently living out my dream...living in another country. I am always looking for a new adventure!
