The 2017-18 school year marks my 11th year at Valley View. I have a M.Ed in Educational Psychology from the University of Houston and a Reading and Language Arts endorsement from St. Edward's University. I am also a Certified Academic Language Therapist, which means I have a passion for teaching children to read. Of course, my duties at Valley View go beyond teaching reading. You will also find me teaching early numeracy skills to kindergartners and providing math support to upper elementary students. My days are full of variety, and I love that I am constantly learning!
When I am not in school, I love traveling with my husband and two boys! We love being outdoors, and this past summer we traveled to Iceland where we hiked to waterfalls, boated in lagoons filled with icebergs, and relaxed in geothermal pools!
Although I love a good adventure, I do love spending time in Austin. I enjoy kayaking on the lake, sitting on my back porch with a good book, and playing board games with my family. I also can't resist a good sewing project and am often tucked away in my craft room creating something new.
I would love to learn more about you, so please come visit me in room 219!
