I have always had a lifelong passion for reading novels. This year, I have introduced Independent Reading of a self-selected text. I hope to inspire my student's love of literature, as well as, develop reading and writing skills. I want to encourage my students to be creative and imaginative. We all have something to say, and I want my students to be able to craft how they will say it. As has been said by many, "We all have a story to tell...now tell me yours." I'm excited to read the stories my students share with me this year.
Here are some interesting tidbits about me:
Born and raised in a small town
Married to my high school sweetheart for 26 years
Have 3 wonderful children
Graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas A & M University Kingsville with a BA in English.
24 Years Teaching Experience
