My goal as an educator is to collaborate with parents, teachers, and students to cultivate a love for learning and provide each child with a nurturing, moral environment where children feel physically safe, emotionally secure, and academically challenged. As a certified interventionist, my job is to work together with TCKS's Intervention Team to assess, progress monitor, report, and communicate student progress and performance, as well as, provide inidividual and small group instruction that gives students the tools needed to be successful.
My teaching experience includes kindergarten, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, sixth grade, English literacy for bilingual kindergarten, high dosage tutoring K-5, and assessment/intervention.
