This is going to be such a great year of learning!  We will explore our world through books, discussions, technology, projects, and experiments.  We will grow as a family and help each other along the way.  I can't wait to get started on our journey!
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Sam Houston State University with a B.S. in Sociology.  I obtained my teaching certification in 2001 and began my teaching career as a first-grade teacher.  I'm certified to teach Pre-K through 6th grade, and have an additional certification in ESL.  I am also a qualified GT teacher.  My teaching experience includes kindergarten, first, and fourth grade.  I am so excited to be a member of the Wildwood Elementary School family.
I can't wait to learn all about you and the things you're curious about.  Here's a little snapshot about me.  I love books!  I love decorating for holidays, so you never know how our classroom will look.  I love reading, writing stories, math, and science.  I've gone fishing and have caught two really big bass. I love to go antiquing.  Working in the garden makes me very happy!  I'm an auntie to Cody, Kaden, and Brittany.  I call them my "Three Bears".  I take care of my sister, Michelle.  She and I like to watch movies, go for car rides, and we love Target and Hobby Lobby!
My goal is for us to be a family and support each other's learning journey.  I want you to be fearless as you ask questions, discover and explore new concepts, and grow towards your potential.  It's going to be the best year ever!  I'm so happy that I've been given the privilege to be your first-grade teacher.
