19 years Dallas ISD
I have served in Dallas ISD for 19 years; two years as a self-contained 3rd grade teacher, three years as a fourth grade teacher and fourteen of those years as a 5th grade Math/Science teacher. I am currently serving in Lancaster ISD as a 4th/5th grade Science teacher.
I have an extraordinary passion and personal commitment to bring success to all of my students. I have always had an innate skill and desire to teach, even as a child. My mother says that at the age of three, I taught my sister who is next to me in age, to use the pot. I have memories of teaching my sisters their alphabet and teaching them difficult math concepts when they struggled. The accomplishment that I am the proudest of is my ability to move children to the next level, never giving up on one. I believe that all children can learn; not always the same way and not always the same day. But eventually the light will come on.
Winners never quit and quitters never win.
