    I am so happy to be a part of the wonderful community at McCoy Elementary!  This year marks my 21st  year as an elementary school teacher and fifteenth year with GISD.   My teaching experience includes math intervention, first grade, and an exciting return to second grade!

    I received a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Eastern New Mexico University, and have ESL and district GT certifications.

    My husband and I have lived in Georgetown since 1991, and are the proud parents of two sons, Bryan, a college senior at U.T. in Austin, and David, a sophomore at Trinity University.


    Classroom Information

    It is important to me that our classroom is a place where all students feel valued, secure, and excited about learning. 

    My role as facilitator will be to help students engage in reading, writing and problem solving activities that are relevant and meaningful as they begin to take ownership of their journey as lifelong learners.

    Students will have many opportunities to collaborate with peers in hands on activities that will promote conversation using content vocabulary and explanations of thinking and strategies.

    Most importantly, each student will be respected as a special individual and valued as an integral part of our learning community.

     

    In our classroom students will be guided to follow these principles:

    Respect each other.

    Do your best.

    Learn from mistakes.

    Work as a team. 

     

    I look forward to partnering with each family to help make this a very positive and meaningful year for your child!
