I am a teacher in H.I.S.D. I began teaching in the Fall of 1991 at Stevens Elementay , where I taught Kindergarten , First, and Third grade While at Stevens I participated in many committees including the Shared Decision Making Committee. In the Fall of 1998 I will be moving to Durham Elementary were I will be teaching the First Grade. One of my favorite lessons was in January of 1998. My Kindergarteners had a chance to play in pretend snow. Each child brought in a bag of packaging stryofoam for our snow. We then turned our tables on their sides to make a contained area for our snow. Some of the things we did were......

We all wished it would snow in Houston for real !!!!

I enjoy spending time with my family. I am fortuanate to have my family close enough to visit with often. I also enjoy amusement parks. This summer I had the chance to try out Astroworld's newest roller coaster, Taz's Texas Tornado. I hope one day I'll have enough time to join the Roller Coaster Enthusiast Club.
