TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 3 year olds for two years at a preschool, while I was finishing my education degree. I have now graduated with my Bachelor's in General Education EC-6 and Special Education EC-12. As of now, I am certified in the state of Texas! :) I finished out the school year teaching kindergarten, and I will be teaching 2nd grade this school year!!! Yay!! I cannot wait to meet all of my wonderful students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that many different things should occur in the classroom at once. I consider this organized chaos. I try my best to individualize instruction to meet each student's need, hence my love for special education. I love learning stations combined with technology, but know full group instruction is necessary too. I like to use new ideas within the classroom that constantly engage the students in what they are learning. I believe in teaching with the student in mind, and I enjoy reading up on the latest research based strategies (another reason why I like Special Education). Lately, I have studied a lot about Marcia Tate! Check her out; she has some awesome ideas!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University - Texarkana in Dec. of 2013.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary skills, and I am certified to teach SPED EC-12 and General Education EC-6 in the state of Texas.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have grown up surrounded by nature my entire life. I love to be outside most of the time. I garden and crochet, am 21 years old, and am always open for new ideas. I have a boyfriend of 4 years, and a wonderful family that supports me with everything I do. My mother is a teacher as well, and she is also inspiration for me to create a variety of things! :)
