About my teaching:
I am very passionate about what I do! I love to see children enjoy learning! This year we will be following the Paris ISD curriculum and incorporating Daily Cafe. I am so excited about this type of teaching! I am NOT a worksheet teacher and believe that books create readers not worksheets! I have worked most of the summer creating a class library based on genres and will allow students to read books that they ENJOY instead of books they are told to read. I believe that when students are allowed to read what they enjoy they will develop the skills they need to become better readers. Our classroom will be like a reading workshop where students guide their own learning!
I am the mother of two wonderful children. Madisyn is an 11th grader at Paris High School and Parker is a 10th grader at Paris High School. This is my 11th year to teach Paris ISD and I love it! I taught first grade for 2 years, 5 years in 3rd grade, and 4th grade for 3 years. I was honored as Aikin teacher of the year for 2014! I love reading and introducing children to the joys of reading! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, scrapbooking, watching sports, and playing with my miniature dauchaund named Bella.
