Welcome to First Grade at Mark Twain Elementary
I am excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and I am looking forward to helping your child grow and make new discoveries throughout our year together. It is my belief that your child has limitless potential and I hope to engage them in a way that makes learning meaningful for them and I look forward to the learning experiences that we will share together.
A little about me...
I am excited to begin my 11th year at Mark Twain. I began as a first grade teacher and then taught 2nd grade for 5 years before coming back to first grade. I know that my 2nd grade teaching experience helps me prepare your child for the next grade level! When I am not at work, I am spending my time being a wife and mother. My husband and I are the proud parents of four children, two boys and two girls. Our oldest daughter graduated from UH and is also a teacher at Mark Twain as a 2nd grade teacher. Our youngest daughter is also a UH grad and is a 4th grade teacher in El Paso. Our oldest son is at A&M completing his masters year and our youngest is a sophomore at UTSA studying business. We are also parents to our sweet lab Pepper. She keeps us busy now that the children are out of the house.
Please know that I am always available so please call or email because your child is important to me and I appreciate your trust in me to teach your child.
