Reading is my passion, even though most people believe writing is my favorite subject to teach. I believe that READING is the most important skill in life. My goal is for every student to see reading the way Beverly Cleary does "as a pleasure." You will see my students read whenever they have an opportunity. It is very important that students read the same book at school and home until they complete the book
In my classroom I try to promote an atmosphere of safety, trust, and respect. I work hard to build a sense of community among my students. I believe great things happen when we work together and learn from each other.
I love teaching! It is so much fun to be with the students everyday. I have been lucky to teach incredible students at Tom Lea. This will be my 36 year teaching. I have taught fourth grade for the last 20 years. It is my favorite grade. I have a BA in Reading and a Masters in Early Childhood. I have been selected teacher of the year 3 times for El Paso Independent School District.
