Teamwork | Pride | Excellence


I am so glad you decided to stop by my page and research a little about your child(s) teacher.  The 2013-2014 school year will be my first year with Northwest ISD and my eleventh year teaching in public school.  I have taught in private school and taught overseas in the countries of Malaysia and Singapore.  I recently relocated to the Ft. Worth area to teach with Northwest.

My person philosophy in education has always been founded on one big idea that made a huge impact on me early in my career.  It is this: In order for me to call myself a teacher, someone must be learning.  In other words, my students’ ability to learn in my classroom empower me to call myself their teacher.  That’s a pretty powerful idea and a very tall order.  I am blessed that I get to work in such an amazing field with other amazing people who love what they do and do what they do out of love.

I am assigned to teach three subject areas this year: Pre-Ap Math for 6th Grade; Journalism; and Teen Leadership.  This will be my 8th year teaching 6th Grade Math- a subject and age I really enjoy working with.  This will be my fourth year teaching Journalism- another area I enjoy that could have easily been my job in ‘another life’ as some say.  I will be teaching Teen Leadership professionally for the first time this year.

Hopefully this gives you a small insight into me.  I look forward to being your child’s teacher this coming year and hope that you feel free to participate in our year-long journey.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.  

Let’s have a fantastic year!
