 Literacy is my passion! 

I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and American Literature with a minor in African American Studies from the University of Texas-El Paso.  I hold a Master's in Education as an Instructional Specialist, concentration Reading. M.Ed. granted from the University of Texas-El Paso.  I also have completed classes toward a doctorate.  Prior to teaching, I worked with youth for thirteen years in residential treatment, as a youth counselor.  I also worked in gang intervention, and as a grant writer. I was in the United States Army.  This is my 12th year in education and 6th year at Ed White Middle School. Now, I am a teacher of teachers!

 As the Instructional Coach for English Language Arts and Reading for the Ed White Campus. My goal is to show students how innovative their learning can be and how to apply it to real-world connections.  We are a Professional Learning Community, it is important for teachers to keep growing just like our kids. Please make sure your child has access to an online library card with Biblioteca or the San Antonio Public Library. 

I strive to support teachers in helping students discover their unique learning styles to create active learners in and outside the classroom.  We utilize their interests to engage them in reading and writing skills.  I believe in building academic confidence and intrinsic learning.  As a classroom community, students are encouraged to display their knowledge on a subject in multiple ways.  We use a variety of techniques.  Your student will do individual work, use technology, create hands-on projects, and work in partners or small groups to accomplish tasks in the classroom.  Students use academic vocabulary in their writing and discussions to prepare them for high school and the real world.   Encourage your child to discuss what they learn throughout the day in all their classes. 

 My husband is a Veteran and a local Master Barber in our community and small business owner. I am a mother of two beautiful and intelligent young women.  Now, both in graduate school working on a Masters.  As parents, we are our child's first teacher.  What we model to become the expectation in and outside the classroom.  I

I thank you for supporting me as an educator to help your child reach their goals. 


Education is the most powerful weapon in which one can change the world.
