Office Education & Business Information received from University of North Texas.Background and Educational Philosophy:
I joined Cross Timbers Middle School in 2004. I was a graduate of Grapevine High School in 1997, I must say it is nice to be HOME.
I previously was a teacher at Hendrick Middle School in Plano, Texas. I had taught sixth, seventh and eighth grade units in Life
Management Skills,Food and Nutrition, Exploratory and Special Education Skills for Living. During my past few years I have really
been able to come up with some really creative and fun lesson plans. I have also recently started on getting my masters and certification
in business/keyboarding. Since I have arrived I have worn many hats at Cross Timbers from being a Cheerleader Sponsor for four years
to teaching a Stock Market Club and this year the new adventure of Yearbook.
I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of your children this year!
I believe that in all of my classes your child is learning a life long life skill, from anywhere to learning how to type 30 words a minute
to balance a check book! If your child is able to walk away from my class and be able to achieve a task learned I will feel like a I have
done my job successfully. I will work and strive to teach as many of these skills to my students so they will be able to use them the rest
of their lives. Using hands on projects and experiences, I feel, are the best ways for students to learn, what I will be teaching.
