TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught fourth grade for six years in a suburban Texas school district before taking a year off the do a little exploring of my own.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In our classroom I try to provide as much choice to students as possible. I employ a lot of stations and tictactoe style activities in which students can choose how they would like to show me what they have learned. Our school just got our first set of Ipads and I am anxious to incorporate these into our classroom as well. Cooperative learning and community building are the glue in our classroom and I will never give either up. I operate on the principles that every student wants to talk, move, and have fun so I try to incorporate as much of each into every day we have together.

Teacher Fellows Graduate

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Texas State University to earn my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a teaching certificate in early childhood through fourth grade with an additional certification in english as a second language. I enjoyed Texas State University so much that I immediately applied and was accepted into the Teacher Fellows program there to earn my masters. Accordingly, I was able to complete my first year of teaching while attending graduate courses and completing an action research project. I earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in this program that also instilled in me the necessity for cooperative learning and community building in the classroom.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I am not working on my classroom I enjoy reading, traveling, and racing cars. It is currently one of my goals to visit all fifty states and all seven continents, but I won't stop after reaching that goal.
