We are on summer vacation!
School starts again on August 17, 2022. We have an exciting year planned, so be ready to learn.
I graduated from Randolph High School in 1991. I attended St. Philip's College after high school and then transferred to Southwest Texas State University, which is now called Texas State University. While attending college, I was a student teacher at Woodlake Elementary. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education in December of 1998. As soon as I graduated, I was hired at Hopkins Elementary, where I was a reading teacher for first grade. The next year, I taught at Hopkins for eleven days before transferring to Spring Meadows Elementary to teach second grade. I have been teaching at Spring Meadows since 1999. I taught second grade for five years and third grade for five years. After being a classroom teacher for ten years, I became the TAG (Talented and Gifted) teacher. I held this position for four years before making another change. I am currently an RTI (Response to Intervention) teacher. In all, I have been teaching for twenty-three wonderful years now.
I have found my greatest passion in teaching RTI. More than anything, I love seeing kids succeed and become confident readers. I also enjoy getting to know the parents of all of my students so that we can work as a team. Remember Families that Read Together, Succeed Together.
