Teacher - Middle School

Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! This passion ignited when I was in high school and choose, as an elective, to be an elementary teacher assistant, spending mornings at the elementary school assisting in a first grade classroom and afternoons at my own school completing my own studies.

I attended the University of Incarnate Word on a basketball scholarship and earned my BS in Education with an emphasis on Elementary Education. I proceeded to work in the private sector of education in San Antonio for 8+ years. I have been a physical education teacher, a pre school teacher,a middle school science teacher and 4th grade general studies (all subjects) teacher.

I participated in training and course work to become a Registered Behavior Therapist and started this new  journey with Chartwell in February 2017 as the High School Lead Line Tech. This school year I have been given the opportunity to combine my knowledge in instructional education and my experience as a behavior therapist to be the new Middle School Teacher. I am so excited about this!

Looking forward to a wonderful year!
