Hi and welcome to my page! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! I hope everyone is ready for an exciting year. I’m so glad that I get to spend it with you, and your child. In my class we are family. Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions throughout the year.
I’ve Created a Amazon Wish list for our growing classroom needs! If you can help out I would really appreciate it!! https://www.amazon.com/hz/
A little about me : I have lived in Odessa for most of my life. I attended Permian high school and graduated in 2002. I am also a proud graduate of UTPB. I have a Bachelors Degree in Multidisciplinary studies, with a teaching certification for grades Ec.-6th grade, and Masters Degree from UTPB in Educational Leadership. This will be my 5th year at Compass. I have taught in special ed/ resource, 5th grade and 2nd grade. I was lucky enough to be awarded Teacher of the Year at my campus in ECISD for the 2015-2016 school year. I have been married for 17 years, and have 3 kids who all attend Compass, Brayden - 11th grade, Brody - 9th and my daughter Brynlie will be in the 7th grade this year.
When I'm not teaching, Im usually running one of my kids to their activities or events, but when I get a spare moment, I love reading.
One of the most exciting things your child will get to do in my class, is join a team house! They will belong to one of four houses for the entire year. They will have the opportunity to earn points for their house throughout the year, learn how to work as a team, support each other and build positive relationships. The houses focus and build on encouragement and positive behavior.
