I am the Restorative Pratice Teacher at Hunters Glen Elementary. I utilize practices to support peacemaking and conflict resolution through healing damaged relationships and making amends where harm has been done while preserving the dignity of everyone involved.
A little about me, I graduated from Sam Houston University with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2010 and obtain a certification to teach generalist EC-6. Following graduation I joined the NAVY and was certified as an Aviation Mechanic. The NAVY really shined a light on my love for helping our students pursue their goals in life. After returning from the military I decided to further pursue my career as a teacher. I continued my education at Houston Baptist University and earned my Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in Instructional Technology. I also obtained my school counseling certification.
My philosphy is that teachers must love what they do in order for the students to love what they are doing. It is important for me not only as a teacher but also as a person to give and model my best if I expect the best from others. It is essential for me to foster a community of students in a safe environment to learn and grow, while also challenging the students to go above and beyond. It is my goal as a restorative practice teacher to develop a restorative community and manage conflic and tension by repairing harm and building relationships.
