Welcome! I LOVE being a Bulldog! This year at the Junior High our theme is Champions. We know through our doors walk champions. We believe that in these halls, Champions are Made!
I am teaching 7th grade writing and Texas History this year, as well as US History for the 8th graders. We will be focusing on the process of learning and redefining success as our ability to overcome obstacles and attempt difficult tasks. Recent research on growth mindsets shows that students can strengthen their brains and succeed at a much higher rate when they learn how to overcome small failures, are congratulated on the bravery of mistakes, and praised for true accomplishments.

I am honored to get to spend my days with your children. They make teaching AWESOME.
Every child deserves a champion!
