I have been teaching for 13 years. This will be my 14th fabulous year!! I have taught one year in second grade in another district, one year in third grade at Central Elementary, four years teaching Kindergarten at Central Elementary, and seven amazing years at Heritage Trails Elementary teaching First Grade. First grade is by far my favorite!
We are a family at Heritage Trails and we will be like a family in my classroom. This means that we make sure everyone is doing the best possible job they can because even now, "Your life is determined by the the choices you make." (Bill Rago)
I graduated from Oklahoma State University Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Elementary Education and certification in Early Childhood in 2004. Sorry Sooner fans, my alma mater is OSU, but I completed my Masters in Reading Education at the University of Oklahoma in Dec. 2008, which means I am a person divided! I am orange and red. This means I will root for Oklahoma when we don't play one another and will still accept Sooner fans in my classroom. Variety is the spice of life!
I am also Nationally Board Certified. My certificate is titled Generalist/Early Childhood Education.
In My Classroom:
I hope parents and students alike will feel comfortable to discuss any questions or concerns. In my classroom we will challenge ourselves to try, try, try. "For if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." If you put your mind to something who knows what you can accomplish! EVERYONE has an opportunity to do great things! I am so glad you have decided to stop by my web page!
