This is my second year teaching at TIS and my 8th year teaching fifth grade math. I previously taught 8th grade math and 7/8 Technology for two years in Amarillo, and I have also taught fifth grade math in the Austin area and internationally in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. But I am so happy to be home here in Houston!
I received my Masters in Education in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University, Portland. I also have my bachelors degree in Social Science and Education from the University of Houston (GO COOGS!). I am Texas-certified in Elementary Education, EC-6 and 4-8, Special Education, English As A Second Language, Technology Applications, and Journalism.
I have been married to my awesome husband, Cary, for 12 years and we have two crazy little guys, Hunter is 4 1/2 and will attend the Early Excellence Academy, and Logan is 10 and will be a 5th grader here at TIS!
I am HUGE sports fan - especially football and baseball - and I love to cheer on the Astros and my New England Patriots! In my spare time, I love crafting and DIY projects. I spent my time this past spring and summer building an entire house full of furniture! My husband and I also enjoy SCUBA diving and have made several incredible dives while living in the D.R. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends and family.
I LOVE math and I am so excited to be sharing my love of math with you! I welcome you to my class and I look forward to having a great year!
I am always available if you have any questions or concerns! My policy is to return phone calls and emails as soon as possible, and within 24 hours.
