Hi!! Welcome to Sugar Land Middle School, 6th grade Social Studies (World Cultures and Geography), and Titan Discovery! The 2021 - 2022 school year will be my 8th year at Sugar Land Middle School and I have happily spent every year teaching 6th grade Social Studies! I am also teaching some of our Titan Discovery classes. Discovery is a class where we will be learning and developing skills that align with Fort Bend ISD's Profile of a Graduate and help our 6th graders as they transition to middle school - organization, planning, technology skills, typing, etc. As a part of the AVID site team, I will also be helping all of my students get and stay organized using their AVID binder and other organizational skills that can help digitally and transfer into the physical classroom. I am looking forward to watching you grow this year, setting goals with you, and reaching them - both in your education and as young leaders & thinkers!
A little about myself: I grew up in Indiana, attending Purdue University, and receiving my bachelor's degree in Psychology with minors in Communication and Organizational Leadership. I moved to the amazing city of Austin in 2009 and the sweet city of Sugar Land in 2011. Once I moved to Sugar Land, my passion to become a teacher could not be hidden anymore. I decided to get my alternative certification from ACT Houston and the rest is, well, history!
I am an avid reader and love the Harry Potter series. I also enjoy making and decorating cookies (with my Harry Potter cookie cutters, of course!), spending time outside on a hike or near the water, and spending time with my friends and family. I am the oldest of 3 - my sister lives in Indiana and my brother lives in North Carolina. I love to take trips wherever and whenever I get the chance, near and far. I am a firm believer that traveling gives you once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories! I don't have any pets, but I do have a bamboo plant that I am looking to name!
