I am currently a 6th Grade Science Teacher at McAnally Intermediate School.  I have developed and applied my teaching philosophy through a variety of experiences including co-leading PBL on Deck presentations, co-leading Growth Mindset presentations, participating in various professional development courses, working as a STEMscopes trainer and am currently becoming STEM certified.   As a teacher and mentor, my main goal is to challenge and inspire my students.  I would like my students to think about the world in totally new ways through a science perspective. While I want the students to comprehend and retain the Essential Knowledge Skills taught, I know that real world experience is where students make the connections.  Understanding the critical thinking and problem-solving techniques applied within our labs, Problem Based Learning and Argument-Driven Inquiry is where students make the connections.  I want to provide students with important skills in science, critical thinking and problem solving that will be essential for any career they choose to pursue.

This will be my 22nd year as a teacher and each year I learn so much more!  Learning is about the journey, not the destination and in my journey I will continue learning.  Like my students, I want to do more than absorb facts, I want to acquire understanding.  
   
I am originally from Brenham,Texas, my High School alma mater.  I later attended and graduated from Texas A&M!  Whoop!   I moved to Aledo in 1993 with my husband, Tim.   We have two children, Madeline and Caleb.   Madeline is a senior at Texas State in San Marcos and Caleb is a Junior at Fort Lewis in Durango, CO.
 
I am looking forward to an exciting new school year!
