Welcome to Kindergarten!!
The most rewarding thing in teaching kindergarten is seeing a student succeed. I believe students learn best by engaging in fun hands-on learning experiences as well as positive social interactions. The love of learning is an on-going process that is built upon daily within a nurturing, organized and peaceful environment where respect is both given and received. Praise, encouragement and routines are very important. I consider the parents of my kinders a vital support system for a wonderful kindergarten experience.
A little about me:
I am a kindergarten teacher at Andy Woods Elementary. This is my 14th year as a kindergarten teacher. My family is from Tyler. I grew up in the TISD school district, attended Tyler Junior College and participated as an Apache Belle, lastly, I received my bachelor's from UTTyler.
My son is a graduate of Texas A&M, and my daughter attended Tyler Junior College and also participated as an Apache Belle. She is now a Junior at Texas A&M. My husband and I have been married for 28 years. We live with our two fur babies, Zoey and Briar who are very loved!
