2014-2015 marks my sixteenth year in education. This is my seventh year with Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. I also taught in Oklahoma City prior to my relocation over ten years ago to the great state of Texas! I have worked as a tutor and SAT and ACT instructor with private, for-profit education learning centers as well as privately tutoring and I am a consultant (when the occasion warrants) for student-athletes seeking information about the NCAA Clearinghouse and the Clearinghouse process.
I am married to Marc, my husband of nineteen years, and I have three wonderful children (ninth, eighth, and sixth graders) who attend Eagle Mountain-Saginaw schools. We also have a two cats, Charlie Parker and Josephine (Josie) Baker. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education (certified grades 1-8, Generalist) fromOklahoma City University and I am currently working on the Texas Master Technology Teacher Certificate (MTTC) and EDGE Letter of Endorsement. Further, I am a member of the Discovery Educator Network (DEN), a DEN STAR, a DENSI 2014 participant, a Symbaloo Certified Educator, a Common Sense Media Certified Educator:Digital Citizenship and a Common Sense Certified Educator on Graphite.
I am involved in several volunteer and service related organizations and I love spending time with my kids and their various Scout units! I have grown to love camping and hiking and I’m certified as an instructor in a wide variety of athletic activities including swimming, life guarding, and archery! Additionally I am a web designer and I serve as web master for a variety of the organizations with whom I am involved.
I believe that EVERY child has the capacity to learn… but not every child learns in the same way or at the same rate. It is my responsibility (and my joy) to help children learn to interact with the world through technology.
