Hello and Welcome Wolfpack! :)
This is my 8th-year proudly teaching Academic Literacy 3 (Reading) and Study Skills here at Plano West! Nothing gives me more joy than making a positive difference in the life of my students and watching them grow with excitement and maturity as they learn.
I love to read and I have fun rummaging through books at thrift stores searching for that treasure novel find. One of my favorite authors is Nicholas Sparks. I just discovered the fun joy of the Kindle ereader!
I come to work each day eager to teach my students all the fun strategies of reading, to help and encourage them to love reading as much as I do. I will make sure my students know they are important, they have a voice, and they have fun reading and learning!
In my Study Skills classes, I enjoy helping my students utilize good time management, grade accountability, and good communication with their teachers while they work on other classwork.
I am single with two grown sons ages 31 and 34. My oldest son has the most amazing little 5yr old little boy a Nana could possibly ask for! He started Kindergarten this year at Plano ISD and I couldn't be prouder!
I love all kinds of music, walking my dog, swimming, and anything outdoors.
