Hello everyone! I am excited to join the NIS team as the reading specialist this year. I have been teaching for 16 years. I have taught ELA, ESL and Special Ed mostly in middle schools in Fort Bend ISD and Alvin ISD. Prior to teaching at NIS, I have worked as an ELA Developmental Specialist, mentoring teachers with 0-3 years of experience. I have two Masters; one in English Language and the other in English Literature, and I am certified as EC-4 & 4-8 Generalist, EC-12 ESL, EC-12 SPED, GT. I have one daughter who is a college sophomore. I enjoy reading, gardening, travelling and geocaching.

          I believe all students have the potential to be amazing and productive citizens if we are patient and understanding while they discover their own learning styles and motivations.

          Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
