About Me

Educational History:

I attended Barbers Hill ISD. I was a third generation Barbers Hill Eagle, with a large family in the area. After high school graduation I attened Sam Houston State University for two years, in their special education program. I transfered to LeTourneau University, in Longview Texas, receiving my Bachelors of Science in Pedagogy. 

Degrees and Certifications:

I am certified to teach general core courses early childhood through 6th grade and special education EC-12. 

Professional Development:

I have attended numerous workshops and professional development courses to further my education. I am always looking for more information to better myself as a teacher, in order to provide the best for my students. I feel that education is always developing and changing, I want to stay updated in new practices and research. 

Current Position:

This is my first year to teach at Dayton ISD. I am excited to be in the C.A.S.L.E. program. This is the first year for my course to be offered at Woodrow Wilson Junior High, and I know it will be an amazing year!

Previous Position:

I formerlly worked in La Porte ISD, as a 6th grade math teacher at James H. Baker. I have recieved an education from two major colleges that allowed me to have several perspectives on the classroom environment and learning. I am able to use both experiences to better the classroom and learning for all of my students. 

Family Information:

I have three wonderful sons. My oldest is a First Grader at Barbers Hill Kindergarten Center. My younger two attend a daycare and preschool program. My children loves sport, the outdoors, and everything trucks. We have several pets: 4 dogs and 6 chickens. I am terrified of chickens, but the kids love them. I love all sports, baseball and football are my favorites.
