Hello! I am so excited to be a part of the Roan Forest Family with the third-grade team!
I grew up in the small town of Castroville, TX - just a few miles west of San Antonio. After high school, I attended the University of North Texas and studied interdisciplinary studies. I student taught in a fifth-grade math class as well as a first-grade self-contained class. After graduating with my Bachelor's in 2016, I moved to Princeton, TX to teach at Smith Elementary School. In my first year of teaching, I taught fourth-grade science and social studies. I learned so much and had a great team! However, third-grade math was calling my name and so the following year I moved down to the third-grade hall. Even though I had such a wonderful experience at Smith, it was time for me to move back home to San Antonio. After a few months of subbing in NEISD, I was picked up as a fifth-grade teacher at Ridgeview Elementary School. Though my time at Ridgeview was great, Roan Forest called for an opportunity I couldn't refuse!
This will be my third year teaching at Roan Forest and I will finally have kiddos back in my class after a year of virtual teaching! Yay, third grade! I have had an absolutely wonderful experience being part of the Roan Forest Family. Even though the Coronavirus made last two years a little tricky, I have a great team that supports each other for the best outcome.
This year is going to be amazing! Teaching third-grade holds a special place in my heart and I am excited to be part of such an amazing team!
