Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
I am so excited to be teaching 6th Grade ELAR and ESL Social Studies this year at Otto Middle School! This is my first year in Plano but my eighth year teaching. Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. So, after graduating from Allen High School in 2009; I packed up my things and head to Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas to earn my Bachelors Degree. I spent three in a half years at SFA; while there I was able to observe at the charter school on campus as well as intern/student teach in campus throughout the community. After graduation I got my first job at Trinity Basin Preparatory. This is a charter school in Oak Cliff. While there I taught 4th Grade ELAR/SS for two years, 5th grade ELAR/SS for 2.5 years and my last semester there I was the Reading Interventionist on our campus where I worked primarily with 5th and 6th grade students. After 5 years at TBP, I wanted to head back to where I grew up. I spent 2 years at Cheatham Elementary in Allen ISD. Here I worked in the SSI Department (RTI) and was also a Special Education Resource teacher. I was able to work with students from Pre-K to 6th grade and enjoyed every minute of it. My jounery has led me to teaching 6th Grade ELAR and ESL Social Studies here at Otto Middle School and I cannot wait to see what this year brings!
When I am not at school you can usually find me reading. I am currently working on getting my Masters as a Reading Specialist online through Stephen F. Austin. When I am not working on school work, I am usually reading for fun, working on puzzles, spending time with family or playing with my cat Ziva.
