Welcome to AVID !!
I am excited to be starting the 2020-21 school year teaching AVID at Manvel High School. I have four children who keep me extremely busy. I grew up in Alvin, Texas and I graduated from Alvin High School. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Houston Clear Lake, and in 2014 I earned my Master of Education in School Counseling from Lamar University. I have 13 years of teaching experience across all grade levels. AVID is near and dear to my heart as I believe all children have the potential to be successful, and I am thrilled to be teaching AVID again this year. AVID is an elective class that provides students with the necesary skills to be successful in college and in life. Students will learn skills and strategies that will build confidence in their own abilities, as well as skills that contribute to their academic and personal success. This year I am also teaching an additional elective, Teen Leadership and Professional Communications.
This school year may look a little different than we are used to, but I am excited to get back to school and work with each of you. I am looking forward to a great year!
