About Me

SUBJECTS

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

I passionately believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. My continuous desire as an educator is to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, invites a sharing of ideas and meets their personalized learning style.

It is my desire to establish an environment, either actual or virtual, which is conducive to the teacher acting as the guide while allowing the child’s natural curiosity to direct his/her learning; this is paramount to a student’s success and satisfaction.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I come from a family of educators; I literally grew up in the classroom. Without a doubt, I knew I wanted to be a teacher, and teaching fourth grade was one of the most rewarding professional choices thus far in my career. As I continued in my professional path, working in public education as an administrator and director of curriculum and instruction were extremely gratifying.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and English and then went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Education Administration. I am currently a certified teacher in Texas and also hold certifications for Instructional Leadership training, TASA Curriculum Management, and a Principal certification.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a self-contained 4th grade teacher for 4 years; a curriculum specialist; a curriculum coordinator; an administrator; a Director of Curriculum & Instruction. Not only was a classroom teacher, but I then spent years working with and supervising teachers regarding authentic instructional delivery.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Within the academic realm, I assisted with the following extracurricular activities: speech team; debate team; drama club, professional speaking, and school newspaper. Personally, I enjoy traveling, watching sports, cooking, reading, and spending time with my family.
