I adore working with children ... there is nothing like seeing the spark in a child's eyes when everything suddenly clicks and they "get it." Reading is a personal passion and I get to introduce the world of reading to kids. How lucky am I?
In my class we: are silly, are polite, support each other, ask questions, explore, sing, dance, create, sing some more, read, write, experiment, observe, sing, discuss, help, learn responsibility ... and did I mention we sing? We have songs for just about everything from math and science concepts to sight words to behavior and manners.
This is my 5th year in education and my 3rd in Kindergarten. I spent several years working in art and graphic design before following my heart and working in the classroom. I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso and moved to Wimberley 5 years ago.
