I starting teaching in the Fall of 2000 in Augusta, Georgia. I have been an elementary school teacher here in Guthrie for 14 years, for total of 19 years altogether, My 19 year old son, Michael, is attending UCO this Fall. I grew up mostly in Northern California, but have lived in 7 different states. I enjoy traveling and have visited 42 states in the United States. I have also visited my family in Mexico a few times over the years. I do speak some Spanish and like to incorporate it in the classroom.
I love teaching and the students I teach. My #1 teaching goal is to instill a love of learning, especially reading, in each of my students. A child's positive attitude towards learning is the key to reaching their full potential. Let's work together and make this a successful year for your child.
