I have taught in public and private schools in Texas and overseas. I have taught 3rd, 5th, 8th and 9th grades. I have taught individual subjects as well as in a self-contained classroom. Most recently I worked as a teacher trainer and curriculum developer.
I enjoy teaching with stations, small groups, and interactive notebooks. I think that students should be engaged in their own learning. They should be talking and helping each other throughout the day.

I have a Bachelor's degree from Ouachita Baptist University, and a Master's in curriculum and instruction with a focus in literacy.
I like reading any research based teaching books that I can get my hands on. I also enjoy making greeting cards and any creative art project that I find interesting.
