  • Teacher: Elementary, Teacher: Middle School 


I have been a Texas educator for 18 years. My current position is with Wink Loving ISD where I teach 4th, 5th, and 6th grade Mathematics. Throughout my career, I have taught all grades from Kindergarten through 8th grade students. I have experienced large 5A & small rural 1A school districts, as well as self-contained classrooms to departmentalized programs.

Because of my variety of experiences, I have a greater understanding to the importance of math teachers working together to develop a strong mathematics program. We need to be willing to share more ideas that work. As middle school math leaders we need to have a better understanding of the foundation that is started at the elementary level, and the application of the skills that will be used at the high school and college level.

Being a middle school math teacher is challenging even on a good day, but it is my passion. I will never tire of the enthusiasm students show when they finally understand a concept for the first time. I love what I do because my job is never stagnate and forever evolving.
