I began my student teaching at an elementary school in kindergarten and then in a first grade classroom. During these special months interacting and learning from these students and teachers, I knew I had found my "home" working with children.
My teaching experience includes nine years as a first grade teacher and two as a third grade teacher. I always enjoyed our tremendous journeys of learning together. The children learned from each other throughout our many problem-solving interactions with partner, small group, and whole group activities.
A New Chapter Began...
This year I will begin my ninth year as an elementary school counselor in Texas. I absolutely LOVE being a school counselor!
All of us are on a journey of learning together. This partnership will help us grow to become lifelong learners. I know the children understand what they have learned once they can articulate and then "show" what it means through their own words and actions.
