About Me: This is my 21st year teaching in the Alvin ISD; all of it at Harby. I have been coaching Swimming/Warterpolo for 19 years. Our season is in the spring, starting around Spring Break. I am also the sponser of Harby's Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
I will be teaching 6th/7th grade English Language Arts - Reading and Writing. I see these as "Art" - very creative processes. I will impart and equip the necessary tools and knowledge to help each of my students become great writers and readers. We will be really focusing on Literacy this year. I believe if we can learn to comprehend and retain that which we read, learning is much more fun and rewarding.
I have lived in the Houston/Alvin/Pearland area my entire life. I graduated from Lamar High School and was on their swim team. I have two business degrees: an Associates of Applied Science in Business from San Jacinto College and a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration from the University of Houston. Before teaching, I spent about 12 years as a Legal Analyst for Shell Oil Co. and Chevron.
Besides spending time with my great family, I enjoy surfing, playing music (drums, guitar, and ukulele), biking, swimming, golf, disk golf, and triathlons (although I don't care for the running..) I attend Revolution Church in Pearland, and . I also serve at Sandy Creek Bible Camp near Brenham.
We have a lot of fun in my classes - I look forward to many great memories...
