I have 10 years of teaching experience! I've taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th grade. I specialize in elementary literacy and gifted and talented education.
The goal in my classroom is to meet a student where he/she is at and create opportunities for student-centered learning through exploration, technology and investigation. I love seeing students challenged and pushed beyond what they thought they were capable of.
Teacher of the Year, 2011-2012
I have a Bachelor's Degree from Dallas Baptist University in Dallas, TX in Biblical Studies and hold a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington.
I am married to the love of my life, Sean, and love the journey we are on together. We have two puppy children, Geordi and Lulu.
