I’m married to an amazing basketball coach and have been a Texas educator for over 15 years. After 11 years in the classroom, I stepped out of the classroom to explore more opportunities to learn, create, and share with my fellow teachers– my passion! During the last few years, I have been a mentor teacher for first and second year teachers, a middle school math instructional coach, and a campus administrator.
Here’s a little bit more about me:
Experience: I have 15 years of experience teaching both upper elementary school and middle school mathematics. I also have two years of experience in campus leadership as an Assistant Principal. I have also been a curriculum writer for a local community college.
Teaching Style: I really like an active classroom. If you were to walk in, you would see my students engaged in hands-on activities, completing station activities, or working cooperatively. It truly is a “routty” (rowdy) classroom.
Education History: I received a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education degree with a Mathematics Specialization from Baylor University in 2002. I received a Masters degree from The University of Texas at Austin in Curriculum and Instruction in 2005. Currently, I am working toward my Doctoral degree in Mathematics Education at Baylor University.
Honors/ Awards: Over the past several years, I have written and been awarded two grants, both from the A+ Education Foundation. One grant was for robotics materials to integrate into my classroom instruction. The other grant was for small group math learning materials.
