A Little About Myself

A Little About Myself

Enjoy reading a little bit about how I came to arrive in Texas.

I am a devoted third grade reading teacher currently working towards a Master's Degree in Reading and ultimately Master Reading Teacher Certification.  I am also becoming G/T and ESL Certified this summer as well.  In addition to my Master's work, I am also participating in the Bluebonnet Writing Project (part of the National Writing Project).  My goal is to work with teachers and struggling readers in a small setting at my school.

I'm a Yankee by birth, born in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I moved to sunny California when I was in the third grade.  My family traveled to Oklahoma just before my 16th birthday.  I spent most of my life in the Sooner State, however, I am a proud graduate of Oklahoma State University!  I finally made my home in the Great State of Texas in the summer of 2000 where I live and teach.

In search of a good read aloud for my students.

Enjoying a great children's book!!!

I might describe my job in a little more detail here. I'll write about what I do, what I like best about it, and even some of the frustrations. (A job with frustrations? Hard to believe, huh?)


Here's a list of some of my favorite children's books.
