What year did you come to GES? 2003-2004

What year did you start working in education? 20 years

Where did you attend college? Texas State University and Lamar University for my Master's.

What is a favorite memory related to school? My favorite memory was Biology class, I remember the first time I got to dissect something. It was a cow eye and I loved it!

What motivates you to do what you do as a teacher each and every day? I love teaching Math and Science, I am able to share my passion for subject matter I really enjoy. In Science, I see students working collaboratively to solve a problem and this reinforces skills that are needed in the real world. I also like the natural curiosity that comes with teaching Science. Students are able to "play" and figure out answers to challenging questions. Math is such a practical everyday tool! I love the use of manipulatives and games I use to make Math more fun even for those reluctant learners that say, "I'm not good at Math!"
