I grew up in Eagle Lake, Texas. It is a very small town about 45 miles from here. I believe that is why I like teaching at Pecan Grove Elementary so much. Pecan Grove Elementary is like a big “bohemian” family. We all work together to get the job done. We are willing to pitch in or lend a hand or things to one another when needed. I love what I do. Although my job can be challenging at times, it is also very rewarding. There is nothing like seeing the look in a child’s eye when he or she has accomplished the task being worked on.
I believe that children learn how to function in society through his or her classroom. Making the classroom a safe and risk-free environment allows children to grow. It is important to let children know that it is okay to make mistakes, and even as a teacher, I do not always have the answers. I can learn from children just as they can learn from me. I constantly remind the children that we learn something new every day.
I believe all children are unique and have different learning styles. Children are very active; therefore, it is important that I plan and allow for an active classroom. Pre-kindergarten children learn through play and experience.
My responsibility as a teacher is to build the foundation for the children’s future. I want to be responsible for a child’s success and allowing him or her to achieve his or her dreams.
Outside of Pecan Grove Elementary, I enjoy spending time with husband Scott and my two dogs, Molly Mae and Teddy. I have two daughters, Holly and Taylor. Holly is now a teacher and head softball coach at Seven Lakes High Schooll. Taylor received her bachelors from Texas State University. She then received her Occupational Therapy Certification. She is an OTA at Speech Therapy Plus here in Richmond. I am also a Lolla to Stetson James and Waylon Wade. Stetson is my first grandchild. He is 3 years old. Waylon joined our family at the end of June. He is 8 weeks old. My family is athletic and we all enjoy sports. My girls both played softball in college. We now enjoy watching Stetson play sports. I also enjoy spending time outside working in my garden and flowerbeds. I love watching things grow.
