About Destin

My interest in becoming an educator dates back to when I was a young girl. If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would say, “A teacher.”

When I got accepted to Texas State University and began pursuing a teaching career, I realized that my strengths are in the disciplines of reading and language arts. Since pursuing my major, I have made the dean’s list in the English department at the university and became a member of Phi Theta Kappa. Because of my aptitude for language arts, I made the decision to become a high school English teacher.

I gained experience working with students at Akins High School in Austin, Texas through an internship facilitated by the department of education at Texas State University. During that time, I obtained hands-on experience teaching and working with adolescents. I also created my own lesson plans and came up with original strategies to use when teaching.

I realize that each student learns in a different way and at his/her own pace -- this is the challenge of being an educator. I strongly believe that working one-on-one with students is the only sure-fire way to push them to the next level. When a student is struggling, oftentimes, the individual just needs someone to sit down and help them work through the challenges that prevent the student from achieving his/her full potential. I would love to be the person to give a student that extra push that could make all the difference.
