• Hello,

    Thank you for visiting my classroom webpage. I teach 6th grade English Language Arts and Reading. I live in Cedar Creek with my family and two dogs. I spent my primary years in Stuttgart, Germany where my family was posted in a military base. My degree is in English and Spanish, and I am bilingual. As part of my undergraduate degree, I studied in Valladolid, Spain. During that time, I visited Paris, France. In reference to that visit, I have a large canvas Eiffel tower in our classroom library which the students enjoy admiring. I have 5 years of teaching experience prior to joining the public school arena here in Bastrop ISD. I previously worked at Cedar Creek Intermediate School as a substitute. I feel very thankful to be a part of Cedar Creek Intermediate School. 

    I am very excited to build positive relationships with students and create an environment where all students are engaged in positive discourse. My strongest experience is in redirection of disruptive and unsafe behaviors.
