Degrees and Certifications:
I am a returning teacher to Memorial Elementary and currently teach 2nd grade ESL. I graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, IN with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Mathematics. I became a Texan in 2015 after moving from my home state on Indiana. I have previously taught ESL 1st grade, ESL 4th grade, and life-skills based programs for children with autism and other developmental disabilities. I am currently completing my master's degree in Special Education with a concentration in autism which I hope to finish this May. When I am not in school, I enjoy knitting (usually while drinking coffee), playing with my dogs (at the dog park mostly), and exploring Houston (there are so many things to see).
