I started my teaching career in 1999 and my focus has always been on Reading and English. I enjoy reading and novel studies, but have shifted my focus to dyslexia intervention. I spent my first 15 years teaching in the Houston area and relocated the Austin area to be closer to family. I graduated from the University of Houston at Clear Lake and before that, from Mac Arthur High School in San Antonio. This is my second year at Cedar Creek High School. I taught Practical Writing and Dyslexia last year and will teach TSI and Dyslexia this year. I enjoy interacting with students and faculty at the high school level, as I have spent the previous six years teaching in middle schools.
