I attended California State Universitywhere I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Development with a concentration in Child Development.
This will be my 15th year to teach. I have taught grades Pre-school, 2, 3, 4, as well as Dysleixia, GT, ESL, Intervention & Adult Education Classes.
I'm excited to be teaching3rd grade here at Harts Bluff.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and a concentration in Child Development.
I received my teaching certification from LeTourneau University and am certified EC-4, Special Education EC-12 and English as a Second Language EC-12.
This summer, I was 1 of 198 teachers across Texas choosen among 5,500 applicants to participae in TEA’a Techer Institute. This was a week long institute in Austin where I was able to help give input on some new idea that TEA will be offerring to schools soon. I have also been in many other professional trainings to keep up-to-date on the latest topics and trends in math, reading, science, ESL, GT & Dyslexia.
This will be my fourth year to teach here at Harts Bluff. I will be self-contained—meaning, I will be teaching third grade reading, math, social studies & science.
Prior to teaching at Harts Bluff, I have worked in other districts within Titus County.
I love teaching and am excited to be back in the classroom once again.
I have two children who keep me quite busy!
Felicity, will be a sophmore and is a JV cheerleader and volleyball player for MPHS.
Clayton, will be in 6th grade. He loves baseball & Green Bay Packers. Clayton will tell you a multitude of facts, he is my little encyclopedia; he seems to know a lot about nature and most anything relevant to science.
We are a busy family, and if we are not at a seasonal sporting event cheering on Clayton or at a competiton for Felicity, we are usually heading out to explore or taking a road trip.
I am originally from California and moved to Texas 16 years ago. Mt. Pleasant has many friendly people and is close to small towns with a lot of unique boutiques to explore (I like shopping!)
When I'm not teaching, I am usually watching my children in their activities, or taking a road trip. I enjoy finding new and fun places to go and eat. I love baseball & enjoy watching the Texas Rangers and California Angels, as well as the Boston Red Sox.
The beach is my favorite place and I enjoy the beauty of mountains. California has both and I'm fortunate to visit them when I visit my brother, who still lives in California. I also visit the east coast beaches since my sister lives in Florida.
Next Summer, we will visit my friend in South Carolina and go shark teeth hunting!
