    Short Bio:  

         About 10 years ago, I finished my Bachelor of Art degree in Social Science.  Afterwards, I became certified through A+ Texas Teachers and made a very long distance move from Anchorage, AK to Corpus Christi, Texas to work at Martin Middle School.  Then I completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on English Language Development.  I am certified to teach all four core subjects, ESL, Special Education, and Gifted/Talented.   

         As I enter my sixth year of teaching, I come prepared to give your children the educational experience they deserve.  An interesting fact about me is I completed all of my college years using an online learning platform.  My classroom utilizes online learning as often as possible because I believe our children will highly benefit from these experiences, and it will enable them to become adults with the skills necessary to be successful.

         Although I am certified to teach all four core subjects, my first choice is English Language Arts. This year with Calallen, I will be teaching 8th Grade Writing and one unit of Reading, and I could not be more excited!  I am passionate abuot teaching writing, and I truly look forward to helping your children find their voices and realize their true potential as writers.

  • Welcome everybody,

        I am really looking forward to this school year!  We are probably going to write more this year than your child has ever written before :).  Our goals will be to : Read, Listen, Think, Discuss, Respond, Communicate, oh and to Write about all of it.  As your child's teacher, I am going to push them beyond their comfort zones, and really help them reach the writing potential they all have brimming beneath the surface.
