I am very excited to enter my 19th year of teaching and my 6th year here at Wood Middle School. I am also starting my first year here as the science intructional coach. Wood is such an amazing campus to be a part of! The staff, students and faculty work together for the common goal of student success.
I graduated from St. Mary's University here in San Antonio with a BS in Kinesiology. Right after graduation I began my teaching adventure. Over my teaching years I have coached, taught PE and science in grades 5th-8th. I have been nominated by my fellow peers as a Golden spur teacher, Trinity Teacher of the year and campus teacher of the year. I am a member of the campus Foundations Committee which strives to improve the overall culture of the campus. I am also the co-curriculum developer of the lesson plans and student interest groups for our W360 classes.
Teaching is my passion, not just my job. I have worked with students of all abilites and unique talents. I believe that what we do as teachers is the foundation for the success for our students futures. I want to teach my students to believe in themselves, perservere, and most importanly LOVE learning!
I also believe the key to success in students is open communication between the parents, the student and the teacher. I do my best to keep parents in the loop on all the happenings of middle school, in my classroom and the science department. I understand how overwhelming it can be for both the student and the parents in middle school with so many teachers and classes. I want you to know that I am here for your students needs and will do what I can to help them be successful. I welcome your input throughout the year to best serve your student.
