    I want to take this opportunity to tell you about myself.  I am married and have two children, ages 19 and 24.  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 27th year to teach school, all at Sunnyvale I.S.D.

What's Happening

  • 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, Chromebooks, projectors, and document cameras regularly in the classroom.

    3–5:  Wetland Ecosystem:  Physical and Behavioral Adaptations - This unit will inform and educate students about the most precious natural resource Texas possesses, its water.  Many challenges face our state concerning water, especially in our aquatic habitats.  Students will learn how wetland plants and animals adapt to survive in a wetlands ecosystem.  The wetland is a type of aquatic habitat that students will visit on their field trip to Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in October.
