This is my 7th year at La Vega Junior High George Dixon Campus, and there is nowhere else I'd rather be. This is my 10th year teaching overall. I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Forensic Science and then got my teaching certification after working in that field for a couple of years. Teaching is my passion, and my students motivate me to be a better person each and every day.
You can reach me from 12:10 - 1:00 each afternoon if you need me at all.
My educational philosophy is that EVERY, SINGLE student has something to bring to the table, and EVERY, SINGLE student has the potential to learn. With that being said, each student must bring their best self to my class each day so that both of those things happen. My classroom is a safe, inviting, positive learning environment, and we will take care of each other even on our bad days. We are just a BIG family!
