Teamwork | Pride | Excellence


I am so glad you decided to stop by my page and research a little about your child's teacher.  The 2014-2015 school year will be my second year with Northwest ISD and my twelfth year teaching in public school.  I have taught in private school and taught overseas in the countries of Malaysia and Singapore.  I relocated last year to the DFW 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.

For my journalism students, we will spend the year exploring the various forms of Media of the 21st century and the impact they have on our society.  The best way for us to do this will be to participate in those forms of Media by filming, producing, editing, and hosting our own television broadcast.  We will make news and information available to our student body through Facebook, blogs, and other relevant social media.  Our 8th grade yearbook staff will diligently log all of our school's efforts so that they can be remembered for generations. 
My SSI students will use this year to strengthen any areas needed in their Mathematics education.  We will build upon what we already know to make us successful in the coming 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!
