My Education & Teaching BackgroundI graduated from Texas A&M in 2001 with an English degree! This is my 16th year in education and my 14th year with GISD. I have taught 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders over the years. I am beginning my 4th year as the campus dyslexia specialist. I began teaching at Forbes in 2005, and I taught 8th grade English/language arts for a number of years before becoming a dyslexia specialist. I believe teaching is an awesome calling, and I am looking forward to the best year yet. Please contact me if you a have question or concern. The fastest way to reach me is via e-mail.My husband John and I are the proud parents of Ruby and Grace. Ruby is an 8th grader and Grace is a 3rd grader. In bbbmy spare time, I love to spend time with my family.Class/Course Information:Structured language: We will not have homework. We will use the MRS curriculum. We will also incorporate DMS (Developing Metacognitive skills) in our weekly routine. On occasion, with much notice, students will have "spelling tests"; these tests actually measure the student's ability to apply the spelling patterns being taught in the class. We will also have a word of the day each day, build a deck from those words and students will be tested over the vocabulary. The words will be tested in sets of 10 using a word bank and fill in the blank tests. Again, there will be ample notice of any type of assessment and we will review during class time.
