About the Teacher:
What year did you come to TES? I started at TES in the Fall of 2001. Before that, I also taught in Hurst-Euless-Bedford schools for 8 years as well as in Corpus Christi for 7 years.
How long have you worked in education? I have been teaching for 30 years. Many of these years have been in 4th grade though I have also taught all other grade levels except Kinder.
Where did you get your degree? I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education from Howard Payne University in Brownwood, TX.
What is a favorite memory related to school? My high school math teacher, Mr. Bennett, was my favorite teacher. He was an excellent teacher and he made learning math easy and fun. He definitely help build my love for math.
What motivates you to do what you do as a teacher each and every day? I love to see the student's faces when they finally get a new concept or gain a deeper understanding. Helping each individual child feel loved and successful is my goal as a teacher and makes me feel like I'm making a difference in the world. I also want to make learning fun & teach students how to think because that is how they will ultimately be successful.
