This is my fifth year at Huntsville Elementary! I taught 4 years in second grade, and this year I decided to move to third grade. I am excited to teach reading, writing, and social studies. I spent time this summer focused on reading implementation by teaching a reading program in summer school and attending a week long conference in Beaumont. I am a part of the Texas READ grant this year, which focuses on the standards that are being taught in reading and writing. I enjoy teaching because I get to work with some of the greatest kids I have ever met!
Everyone needs someone to support them - that person who pushes them when they don’t feel good enough. They need someone to celebrate their successes, big or small, and confirm they are worth something. I strive to be that person. A child is a sponge that will absorb the environment around them. My goal is to create a positive and nurturing environment in my classroom. It fills my heart to make even a tiny difference in the lives of my students. I am fueled by persistence and progress.
