Fourth grade has been my passion for the past 12 years. I will be commencing my 13th year at Donald and my 23rd year of teaching public education this school year. In addition, I have three years teaching experience in a private school. I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Baylor University and a Master of Education degree from Texas A&M Commerce. I am ESL and STEM certified. I’ve had the opportunity to teach grades 6-12, kindergarten, and my favorite- fourth grade.
I will be your child’s writing and word study teacher this year. I’m looking forward to our journey together as it is my hope that your child will be both inspired and challenged in the writing process. Writing is critical in this age of immediate communication and information. I particularly enjoy word work within the writing piece to construct the most effective message. We will most definitely grow together as authors!
I am proud to proclaim that I am a native Texan! I have a husband of over 23 years and two children. My daughter attends Baylor University, and my son attends Texas A&M. We have three pets, two cats and a dog, that keep us continuously entertained with their shenanigans. In my free time, I enjoy journaling, reading, gardening, cooking, and exercising.
As a fourth grade team, it is our sincere hope that your family will find learning meaningful, thought-provoking, and pleasurable this year. Welcome to the wonderful world of fourth grade!
