I am so thrilled to be a fifth grade teacher at Anne Sullivan Elementary! This year, I am teaching ELA with a GT homeroom class. I am GT trained and the Campus Champion of Gifted Services, as well as a trainer of GT teachers for the district. I am also the adviser for NEHS, and I am part of the district's NEHS Leadership Team.
I am a proud Coog with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (emphasis in early childhood and psychology) from the University of Houston. I have been teaching in Fort Bend 19 years, in elementary for 23 years, and in education for 26 years.
My teaching forte' is in reading, and my goal is to encourage all of my students to love reading for a variety of purposes. I also enjoy sharing riddles and brainteasers, as well as using different modes of imparting knowledge to "train their brains" to make connections and think in different ways. Additionally, fostering a sense of teamwork and promoting good citizenship while celebrating individuality and creative talents are skills vital to future success.
The ultimate goal is to provide for my students an example of leadership, responsibility, and inspiration so that they, too, may be trusted to lead and inspire others.
