A Little About Your Teacher
Hello there! I am originally from Spring, Texas but have lived all over Texas for one reason or another. I'm entering my 19th year in education. I've taught grade levels 4-8, but I have worked with students of all ages. I moved to Humble ISD after 13 years in Magnolia ISD.
After graduating from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State) in San Marcos, Texas, I began working in 5th grade teaching Math and Science, then Reading, Language Arts, and US History, at an elementary school in Magnolia, Texas. I would move to the junior high three years later to teach 8th grade English and coach the cheerleading squad for another 11 years. I moved to Humble ISD because it is closer to home for me and it's where I would love for my own children to attend school.
My Life Outside of School
With technology increasing and having access to so many devices at our fingertips, I understand the value it can have in the classroom. I am "unafraid" of using technology with my students and have utilized it in several different way to promote a 21st Century learning environment in my classroom to make it more student-centered.
Having an open heart and open mind are qualities I feel have been pertinent in being being a successful teacher. Living by this "rule of thumb" has helped me develop great relationships with my students, colleagues, and parents, and has helped me face the daily challenges of teaching and adapting to the ongoing changes in the educational world.
