I have served as an ELAR teacher for 4 years here at Beltline Elementary. In my second year of teaching, I was named Beltline Elementary’s Teacher of the Year. While serving, my passion has been to enrich my students with the expected curriculum, enhance their knowledge of the real word, and use innovative, yet creative teaching, to inspire my students to be their best.
My masters of education has given me the knowledge to understand pedagogy, how to meet the diverse needs of all students, and how to lead/impact instruction.
As a recent graduate of Dallas Baptist University my goal, and dream, was to become an educator. Furthermore, to become a leader and the face of change in the educational system.
My background is rooted in English and reading. DBU instilled the ideology of being a servant-learner. That means one, no matter what capacity or position they hold, must serve as they lead. I will always serve my students and continuously seek more knowledge to better my craft.
It is through Reading that one may become more knowledgeable. I believe in setting a foundation in which ALL students shall inherit. When they leave my classroom, they will blossom and become scholars of excellence who desire to know more.
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
