This is my 22nd year as an educator. Over the past 20 years, I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD. The 2017-2018 school year marks my fifth year at Grapevine High School (GHS), and I am thrilled to be a part of such an awesome campus!
At GHS, it is the goal of the ESL program to create effective readers, writers, speakers, and listeners of the English language. This is accomplished through the use of research-based, student-centered activities that are tailored to provide GHS’s English language learners with the opportunity to acquire the English language quickly.EducationBA - Arizona State University, 1996Summa Cum LaudeWork ExperienceMesquite Elementary School, Gilbert, Arizona 1996-1998HEB ISD, Bedford, Texas 1998-2008Cannon Elementary, Grapevine, Texas 2008-2012Heritage Middle School, Colleyville, Texas 2012-2013Bridges Accelerated Learning Center, Colleyville, Texas 2012-2013Grapevine High School, Grapevine, Texas 2013-17CertificationsEarly Childhood - 12th Grade ESLEarly Childhood - 12th Grade Language Arts, Reading
