I am thrilled to be starting my fifth year at Natalia Elementary as a second grade teacher! Second graders are so eager to learn and apply what they've been taught; one of many reasons why I enjoy teaching this grade!
Although I was not raised in Texas, I decided to make Texas my home once discharged from the military. I am married to a great guy, and we have three amazing sons, daughter-in-laws and 4 granddaughters. I also have 2- 4 legged girls: Ladybird (a Bassett mix) and Lucy (a German shepherd).
I believe that our class is a family. As a family, we will work together, play together and sometimes disagree. However just as all families disagree, I will model how to do so with compassion and empathy for one another. As I get to know the families of my students, they too will get to know my family!
I recently read a quote, "The best part of teaching is that it matters". It has become one of my favorite quotes that I have taken to heart!
I look forward to joining a partnership with my students and their parents this year. If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
