This is my second year as the Targeted Support Teacher for Northwood Elementary. I provide small group instruction for students in K-5 who are struggling with specific reading and math skills. This focused instruction helps students to set goals and make gains to close gaps in their instruction. Before my role as the Targeted Support Teacher, I was a classroom teacher for 22 years and taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. This is my 19th year at Northwood!
I was born in San Antonio but grew up in a small town near Corpus Christi called Woodsboro. I was very active in sports and always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I am the oldest child and have cherished my role as big sister. My family is very important to me.
I earned my BS in Education in 1997 from Texas State University. In 2007, I completed a Master of Education from UTSA. In addition, I am a certified Reading Specialist and hold a Master Reading Teacher certification for the state of Texas. I am beginning my 24th year as a teacher for NEISD.
I have a wonderful husband and two amazing children. We love spending time with each other and our extended family. We enjoy visiting the beach, playing board games and camping at our beautiful Texas State Parks! We also love animals, especially our two dogs.
