Academic/Teaching Career:
I earned my BA from Mary-Hardin Baylor University in Behavioral Science with a minor in psychology. While attending Mary Hardin Baylor I played a semester of collegiate tennis. After a semester I decided to focus on my studies and was asked to join Pi Gamma Mu the social sciences honor society. Later, I continued my education at Stephen F. Austin State University and earned my teaching certificate. Because I enjoyed trying to bring active learning into the classroom I pursued and obtained a MA in Instructional Design from American Intercontinental University.

I began my teaching career as part of a magnet program for Houston ISD. Here studies were focused on environmental education and social studies such as Native American studies and United States History. Students learned through hands-on activities: They learned about the health of an environment by collecting and studying specimens from its' lake, practiced map skills and orienteering as they hiked through the piney woods of East Texas, discovered native american culture during a trip to a mock village and studied early United States history as they worked like an early settler in a log cabin and on small farm.

Later, I tried to bring the hands-on approach into the classroom when I began to teach 3rd and 4th grade in Crockett, Texas. Continuing this approach I came here to Diboll and began teaching 4th and 5th grade science. After 12 years at the Intermediate level I am glad to still be here in Diboll and I am eager to teach your 8th grade students.


Expectations for 8th grade science:
