I've called Waller home for the past 5 years and am thrilled to be starting another school year here!
My husband and I have been married for 15 years, and we have two precious daughters, Avery, who is in 7th grade, and Ella, who is in 4th. Between both girls, we are very busy with soccer, dance, and music. I come from a long line of teachers, and both of my sweet girls say they want to be teachers when they grow up, too!
Since 1999, I have had the pleasure of serving in the classroom as a 2nd grade and 4th grade self-contained teacher, a reading intervention specialist for 2nd-5th graders, a Literacy Coach, and I'm now in my fourth year as a 4th grade English/Language Arts teacher here at TES!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE reading and writing! I have a huge passion for wanting to teach kids how to grow their own love of these areas, while they learn how to think deeply and speak thoughtfully about what they read and write. This year my focus teaching areas are writing and science, but of course our class will be reading lots of authentic, amazing literature to support science standards and use as mentor texts for our writing!
It's going to be a wonderful 2017-2018 school year!
