Welcome! We are all excited to start this special new school year and to meet our new Falcons! I teach 6th-grade ELA, and this is my sixth year teaching at "the Fort". I also sponsor the Morning Meditation Club (meeting times, to be announced). I have been teaching English language, writing, and literature for 19 years. One reason I love working at FBISD is that the district's Profile of a Graduate aligns with the calling I feel to teach. I want to empower students to reach their individual goals and to contribute to the creation of a better world. I am committed to supporting parents and my students this year as we co-create online learning together.
