TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently an elementary teacher doing what I love and having a blast along the way. Throughout my career, I have worked directly with students, teachers, and instructional leaders across the State of Texas in providing targeted support for teachers and students. I have a clear understanding of the challenges that both urban and suburban students and teachers face on a daily basis. I'm also a professional Guinea pig and will try anything out there to find innovative ways to teach and reach all of my students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

These words represent my professional beliefs and styles: collaborative, differentiated, fun, workshop approach, interactive, energized, data-driven, solution-focused, explicit and purposeful instruction, efficient planning, meeting, and learning
