As a former educator for 17 years and certified in TX and CA. I understand that students learn content in different ways as well as at different rates; it is essential to help your child find the path that works for them.

I have taught in grades 3-8 in TX and 5th grade in CA. Most of my career has been with 5th and 6th graders at different positions within the school. I have been an instructional coach (4 years), a science lab teacher (3 years), and a teacher in a self-contained classroom setting (7 years)...personally this is my favorite position to teach because you really get to know your students and their family. I really enjoy teaching all subjects because, as a teacher, it keeps you on your toes, but if I had to choose two subjects to teach for the remainder of my career, it would be math and science. These are the two subjects I started with in my teaching career and were my two favorite subjects when I was a student. The key to both of these subjects is to make them engaging and create a personal connection to them that you will remember.

Undergraduate Degree: University of Houston - Bachelor in Arts, Multi-/Interdisciplinary Studies, General

Graduate Degree: Stephen F Austin State University - Masters in Education, Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL)


My main hobby is volunteering with my local Junior League chapter. I love the feeling after each shift and knowing I helped my community and its partners. I am an advisor to new members, so I ensure that they are well acquainted with our mission, as well as feel like they are getting the best volunteering experience as a new member of JLTW. I also enjoy volunteering internationally to support animal sanctuaries and bring awareness to animal trafficking and the conservation of land affected by deforestation. Working at animal sanctuaries is hard manual labor, but so rewarding to see what the organizations can do with little resources and a big heart. I also enjoy creating floral design arrangements, and one day hope to have my own floral design business, which I always said jokingly that this is what I would do when I retired from education. I have recently taken up the hobby of caring for hydrangeas, similar to taking care of a pet. They need to be on a regimented watering schedule of a gallon of water every other day and in partial sunlight. For my long-term interest, I love to travel! You could put me on a plane anywhere, and I am sure I will find a way to have a good time and photo opportunities. Of all the places I have traveled to, I could live in London and Thailand.
