My name is Mrs. Diaz. I graduated from UTTyler with my Bachelors in EC-6 Education. I decided that I wanted to become a teacher at a very young age because I loved being involved in the process of learning new things. It has been my dream to be able to impart knowledge into the minds of so many young individuals and I am thrilled to be able to do that at Andy Woods. This is my fourth year teaching at Andy Woods. I will be teaching Kindergarten this year! I previously taught Kindergarten in Brownsboro ISD. Teaching has been an incredible journey so far and I look forward to many more years of being surrounded by young minds that change my paradigm on a daily basis.
Philosophy of Teaching
I believe that we are able to learn something new everyday. It is because of this perception that I'm able to impart new knowledge into the minds of my students and in return, they teach me something new everyday. We are all different and it's because of those differences that we are able to be complete. The visual that I'm able to connect with in relation to this philosphy is of a puzzle. Each individual is a piece of a puzzle and without all the pieces, our puzzle will not be complete. Each day I am able to interact with my students and I'm able to make a connection to their learning and they are able to make a connection to my learning because we learn from each other in order to complete our puzzle. Everyday is a new interaction and a chance to learning something new.
