A little about me professionally
I attended Stephen F. Austin State University for my undergraduate degree in education specializing in reading and early childhood. I received my masters in education with an emphasis in reading and gifted education from the University of North Texas. I have been priviledged to be the Murphy Middle School Mentor Liaison for new teachers for the last four years, and was a part of a team of mentor liaison's that helped write a professional development training for all new teachers in PISD which is still used today. I was previously on the board of the Dallas Branch of the International Dyslexia Association Dallas Chapter. 2017-2018 marks my 21st year to teach. During the course of those years I have taught 4th grade, 6th grade ELA, 7th grade ELA on level and honors, 8th grade ELA on level and honors and am currently also teaching a 7th grade accelerated reading class which supports struggling readers.
