I am so excited to begin both my first year as a Rockdale JH Tiger and the first year of my second career as a classroom teacher! A few important/interesting things about me:
*I graduated from Southwestern University with a BA in History
*I later earned Youth and Education Ministry Credentials from Concordia University.
*I have served 12 years as a Professional Student Minister at several Central TX Churches (including 3 exciting years helping to plant a church in Northern Williamson County!)
*I recently earned my teaching credentials through Region XIII Educator Certification Program.
*I am blessed to have an incredible, talented and supportive husband, 5 beautiful children, two amazing children-in- laws, two precious granddaughters and a lovely Mom who has always been by biggest fan!
*On weekends, you will often find our family at the drag strip supporting our youngest son's Jr. Drag Racing "career."
*My other hobbies include: hiking, learning (I get to be a professional learner!) writing, reading, drawing, creating mixed media art, designing, baking, and spending as much time as possible with friends and family!
My Education Passions:
I am passionate about figuring out how to support the success of students who learn differently! I believe every student can learn to their potential. Some students just need teachers with a little extra empathy, patience, tenacity and creativity, combined with a belief that ALL students can grow, and can grow exponentially! It's my job to do my best to figure out how to help them be successful.
I am looking forward to an AMAZING year!
*Everyone is a genius, but if you expect a fish to climb a tree, it will spend it's life believing it is a failure.
