I have been in education since 2003. I wanted to be psychologist, but I decided I could make a bigger difference in the classroom. I volunteered in my kids classrooms and found a lot of gratitude working with kids, so I changed my major to Elementary Education. I have taught 3rd grade 4 years, 5th grade 4 years and I am on my 2nd year in 4th grade! I love to see the light turn on when a student grasps a concept!
I use a lot of cooperative learning techniques. I love to teach science and social studies using projects and group work. I incorporate technology wherever I can.
I have been nominated for teacher of the year on 2 separate occasions.
I graduated in 2003 from Texas Christian University with a BS in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Education Administration. I will complete my coursework in December.
I have been married for 25 years and have 2 great children. One is in college and the other is a sophomore in high school. I spend a lot of time working on school and researching new ways to teach math and science.
