I am so excited to be your child's Second Grade Teacher this year!! I am honored to go to a job I love everyday. It is a true joy to watch a child's love for learning blossom throughout the year.
I started my career in education in 2006 in Las Vegas, NV as an Assistant Teacher at the Alexander Dawson School in Kindergarten and First Grade. I worked full time and completed my degree while working in the classroom each day. When my family and I moved to Austin in 2010 I was a Teacher's Assistant at Barton Creek Elementary for 3 years. I saw first hand what an amazing community Eanes ISD truly is. I graduated in May of 2011 with my BA in Educational Studies and completed the I Teach TX alternative Certification program with recommendation for candidate of the year, while continuing to work in the classroom each day. I am currently attending Texas State University's Graduate Program for a Masters in Reading Education, I will graduate Spring 2018!!
I taught second grade at Baty Elementary in Del Valle ISD and was asked to sit on a number of committees, including math curriculum writing. I am extremely excited to be in Eanes ISD and to be teaching second grade at Cedar Creek Elementary for my fourth year!
A few interesting facts about me:
I was married to my husband in December of 2011. We have two furry babies, (our beloved Boston Terriers) Libby and Roxie. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease December 2016 and have had a lot of fun creating recipes that adhere to my new condition. Outside of teaching I am passionate about Holistic Nutrition and Fitness and am working on being certified in Holistic Nutrition Counseling and am a Fitness Coach. I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, trying new things, watching Premier League Soccer, and being around my friends and family. I am also a Denver Broncos fan and enjoy watching them during the NFL season! GO BRONCOS!!!
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my team and students!
