Classes Taught: 6th Grade Language Arts
Hello! I'm a recent graduate from Illinois State University with a major in Elementary Education, minor in Children's Studies, and four middle-level endorsements in Reading, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. I've spent the majority of the past 8 years working with youth, possessing a strong desire to pass on my enthusiasm for lifelong learning to future generations.
I taught wildlife survival in the Rocky Mountains at YMCA Camp Chief Ouray, co-taught two classes of international English Language Learners in Washington, D.C., taught at a Title 1 school in my birthplace of San Antonio, TX, and am thrilled to be teaching 6th Grade Language Arts at Brentwood!
I believe every student, regardless of his or her background, has the capability to succeed both vocationally and throughout life. I incorporate Love & Logic in my classroom and value students' self-esteem and self-confidence inside and outside of school. If you ever need assistance with anything, feel free to reach out! I love helping others and am here for you and your student.
