I am a veteran teacher who looks forward to the beginning of this school year (#30) as much as I did the first year. I love what I do, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
As a parent, I have watched the child development and reading readiness from my coursework unfold before my eyes, and I believe I am a better parent because I teach and a better teacher because I am a parent.
I believe that learning is just as important for me as it is for my students and children, and that is why I continue to take graduate classes and pursue other professional development opportunities.
I earned my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Dallas, my Masters in Education (Reading) from the University of Texas at Arlington, and PhD in Curriculum and Instruction Leadership from Marian University in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.
