Teach Like a Pirate

Current Position:

This is my 7h year at Justiss Elementary. I am one of the two Reading interventionists on our campus. I pull groups in grades K-4 to provide targeted, data-driven, researched-based instruction to get our students to grade-level expectations. I believe in a growth mindset approach and involve the kids by showing them their data in a kid-friendly way that they can understand. My teaching background is primarily in 1st grade. I have taught all subjects, GT, SPED, and departmentalized Reading/Writing. We also offer a program called Read Naturally to our 2nd and 3rd graders that is focused on reading fluency, accuracy, and comprehension. I believe Paris ISD offers the absolute BEST interventions for our at-risk students. 



 Thank you for choosing Justiss as your child’s school!  #DreamBig #All_In

Previous Position:

Before becoming a teacher, I completed my internship and residency at Chisum Elementary. I observed and taught in a 1st grade self-contained classroom and a 4th grade Writing classroom. After completion of my coursework, I became a Pre-K teacher at Little Ark Learning Center here in Paris. 

Family Information:

I married my wonderful husband, Michael in 2011. We had our first child, Brian in 2012 and then our daughter, Delilah in 2016. Brian is a 4th grader at Justiss and Delilah is at Givens. We have a cat named Jack that we rescued. We also have a crested gecko named Sunny that is often at school with me! The biggest baby of all is our Austrailian Shepherd, Bear. I am the middle child of two sisters, Liz and Jane.
