I am very excited to be your teacher this school year. We are going to have a fantastic school year. Please note that I will be using google classroom as my primary source of communication and form of getting information out to you. I sent directions for how your child can join that in the blue folder that went home with you at meet the teacher. Students MUST join this to be successful this school year. Parents, you need to join my Remind 101 in order to assist your child in being successful this school year. Directions for joining that went home in the blue folder also.
Now, here is a little bit about myself that I would like you to know.
I am starting my fourth year here at Canyon Ridge Elementary, my third year teaching 5th grade ELAR/Science/Social Studies. Before starting my teaching career I grew up in Comal county, attending Smithson Valley High School. After high school I went off to Texas Tech University, where I got my degree in Multidisciplinary Studies EC-6th. One very exciting time for me at Texas Tech was when I got to study abroad in the Dominican Republic and teach underprivelaged ESL kids for a whole summer.I love to be with my friends and family, doing fun stuff such as; shpping, eating, laughing, being outdoors, and on the water. I really love to travel, and I designate a lot of my time and money to exploring new places. Right now I am working on two travel goals - visiting every state in the U.S. and going overseas. I am a huge Spurs and Dallas Cowboys fan. Lastly, I love coffee and avocados!
My goal as your childs teacher is to make learning fun, and make your childs 5th grade experience very successful and one they will always remember. Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. 5th grade is intense and can get very busy, but it is also going to be so much fun for you and your child.
I am very excited for this year - it is going to be great - GOOD VIBES ONLY!
