I started out as a 1st grade aide, then moved to 2nd grade teacher for one year, and finally landed in 4th grade, where I've been for the past 11 years. In 2019, I returned to 2nd grade and remain there until my next adventure!
I love teaching through movement and kinesthetic activities. I love singing, dancing, and acting out with my students. I've recently created several QR code activities to use with my students...and they eat them up!
Co-authored the book, Text Structures from Nursery Rhymes with Gretchen Bernabei and Jayne Hover.
Graduated from Sam Houston State University in December 2006.
I'm a Texas teacher, blogger, author, and presenter. I've been teaching 4th grade for 11 years, and I absolutely LOVE what I do. I'm excited for what each new year brings! :)
