I am so excited to be working with your students this year! This is my first year teaching second grade and my second year teaching. I attended Southwestern University in Georgetown and received my Bachelor's Degree in Communication. Prior to teaching, I had a decade career in sales and marketing. When I had my twins, I decided to be a full-time mom. Once my kids started kindergarten, I started subbing for Huffman ISD. I fell in love with being in the classroom and decided to get my teaching certification. I am certified EC-8th grade. I've worked in the district in various roles and am very excited to be a part of the yellow house team for another year!
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I've been married to my husband Neal for 13 years. We met through our former jobs while we were both living in New Braunfels. I have boy/girl twins in 3rd grade at Falcon Ridge Elementary. I love attending my kids various sporting events, going to the movies with my kids and traveling as a family.
Second grade is such an important year for students. They are starting to become more independent and it is important to instill in them a responsibility for their learning. I hope to have an engaging classroom where students are able to get a hands on experience and ask questions like:
- What does this really mean?
- Why am I learning this?
- How does this relate to/affect me?
- How can I use this information?
Mrs. Brown and I have created an Amazon wishlist for our classroom. The list includes awesome learning resource we want to share with our students, basic class supplies and even class snacks. We will continue to update the list throughout the year. You can access the list by clicking on the link below or scanning the QR code with your cellphone's camera.
