I have been teaching for 12 years. I've taught PK-7th Grade, except 1st. I'm a Texas teacher who uses the TEKS to drive instruction. Currently, I am teaching 4th and 5th Graders in a Gifted and Talented Pull-Out Program. I have taught in a variety of school districts. My teaching career began in a rural district where I taught reading for an entire Junior High School. Then, I moved on to a suburban district where I taught Intermediate School Reading and Social Studies. For the past 10 years, I've been at an Urban Title 1 School.
My goal is to instill my students with higher order thinking skills and problem solving strategies so that my students are prepared for the future. I take pride in creating a multi-cultural environment that values my students heritage. I like to get my students up, moving and talking through project based learning. I have a passion for technology integration.
