Hello parents. I appreciate your consideration in my services as you search for support in your child’s academic development.
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. From 2005-2007 I taught 5th grade science at Thurgood Marshall Elementary, a Title 1 school, in Richardson ISD. In 2007 I moved to Westwood Junior High, also in Richardson ISD, to teach 7th grade math and begin my career as a coach. In 2008 I moved back to the science department and taught 8th grade science at Westwood until 2012. During my time as a science teacher in Richardson, I attended Lamar University via their online graduate program and obtained my MBA in Teacher Leadership specializing in curriculum writing. With my family living in Allen, commuting to Richardson every day became very difficulty, so in the 2012-2013 school year I moved to Jack Cockrill Middle School in McKinney ISD to continue teaching 8th grade science.
I am currently certified to teach science grades 4-8 and math grades 4-12. I plan to add certifications in ESL and science 9-12 during the 2013-2014 school year.
In addition to my classroom experience, I have held positions as a professional tutor. From 2002-2004 I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes in Dallas specializing in phonemic awareness tutoring for students with learning disabilities. In 2005 I worked at Sylvan Learning Center in Plano helping 9th and 10th graders with homework and test prep for science and math. I have also taught remedial summer school sessions for both 8th and 6th grade math.
My tutoring focus will be student centered cognitive development aligned with Texas learning standards (TEKS).
