Previous Work Experience:
I started teaching in Houston, Texas right out of college. I taught third for one year and first grade for three years. After that I was lucky enough to get a job at Crete Elementary where I taught third grade for two years and second grade for 17 years. In the 2007-’08 year I was given the opportunity to teach second grade at Coretta Scott King Magnet School and have been happily teaching here ever since.
Hobbies, Extracurricular Interests:
I enjoy outdoor activities such as gardening, hiking or just sitting on the back patio and reading my book.
“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we really are, far more than our abilities.” –JK Rowling.
It’s difficult to choose. I have recently enjoyed reading, The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I could also reread the Hornblower series by CS Forester any time and still enjoy it.
