‚ÄčAs a teacher, I love creating magical learning moments! As a young teen, I was always very involved with my grandmother's second grade class, I enjoyed grading papers and spending afternoons with her students. As I grew older, becoming a teacher just always seemed natural. I studied at UT Tyler and graduated at the top of my class with a BSIS, specializing in reading and art. Teaching reading is my first love and I enjoy watching my student's growth and their love of reading being carried outside my classroom as they become lifelong readers.I'm starting my eleventh year at Hawkins Elementary and excited to start this year. My happy place is sharing experiences with others, I am thankful to spend my days doing what I LOVE.
