I want to take this opportunity to tell you about myself. I am married and have two children, ages 18 and 23. I am a graduate of Baylor University (Sic'em Bears!) with a degree in Business Administration. I received a Master of Science Degree in reading from Texas A & M University-Commerce. I am certified in Elementary Education to teach K-8 , certified in English as a Second Language (Grades EC-12), and certified in Technology Applications (Grades EC-12.) This is my 26th year to teach school, all at Sunnyvale I.S.D.
2018 GT Independent Projects
Technology Integration:This year I will be helping teachers integrate technology into the core curriculum. The students will be exposed to websites, apps, and innovative devices to help them create, produce, problem solve and collaborate with each other. Students and teachers will be using iPads, laptops, projectors, document cameras, and Smartboards regularly in the classroom.GT Pullouts Begin Tuesday, August 28Kinder: Tuesday and Thursday, 9:45–10:451st Grade: Tuesday and Thursday, 8:45–9:452nd Grade: Tuesday and Thursday, 12:45–1:453rd Grade: Tuesday and Thursday, 1:45–2:454th Grade: Tuesday and Thursday, 2:45–3:45What are we learning in GT?K – 4TH GradeThe GT classes started a unit called Secret Formulas. Students will act as laboratory scientists and creative inventors as they develop their own “products.” They will observe and test ingredients, then create and/or record their own personal formulas for paste, toothpaste, cola, and ice cream! Carefully designed to convey key math and science concepts, these sweet and tasty activities provide real-life experiences with chemistry, allow students to investigate the properties of substances, and build student comprehension of cause and effect. This program was developed by the Great Explorations of Math and Science (GEMS) program at the Lawrence Hall of Science.
