Greetings Dolphins and welcome to middle school 5th grade ELA and reading! As your teacher, we will be having classes in a double block. This means we will have two periods in which reading, writing and ELA skills will be taught. This block will also incorporate study skills that will prepare you to further your education career.
My philosophy is simple: I believe students learn best when they feel valued and have a positive relationship with their teacher. I continuously strive to learn new things about my students to build positive relationships and let them know that I sincerely care about them.
Let me tell you about myself. I graduated with honors from the University of Houston. I have ten years of teaching experience, of which 9 were in public school, and this is my first year at THRS. I have a professional membership with The Texas Association of Gifted and Talented, along with The National Council of Teachers of English.
I have lived in Sugar Land for 25 years and am married and have two wonderful adult children including a precious daughter in law and grandchild! Some of the activities I enjoy are reading, travelling, and spending time with family and friends.
