I began my teaching career in 2012. Currently, I'm teaching in a self-contained first grade classroom. Student Teaching: 2nd Grade Long-Term Substitute Positions: Pre-K, 3rd Taught: 3rd Grade (1 year), 5th Grade (1 year)
My goal each day that I'm in my classroom is to INSPIRE. I want my kids to enjoy being in my classroom and learning new things and I long to spark curiosity within them. I enjoy working hands-on with my kids during small group instruction, but I truly love seeing my students explore during their independent work at learning stations.
2016-2017 NISD Elementary Teacher of the Year
I'm a 2011 college graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I'm certified to teach Early Childhood through 6th grade. I'm also ESL and GT certified.
Prior to my life as a teacher, I had my own graphic design business. Although I thoroughly enjoyed graphic design, teaching is what has ALWAYS been in my heart. I'm so glad I made the move!
