    My Education & Teaching Background

    I graduated from Texas A&M in 2001 with an English degree!  This is my 18th year in education and my 16th year with GISD. I have taught 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders over the years. I am beginning my 6th 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 am passionate about educating my students and also increasing awareness about dyslexia.  My passion for this field of work is both personal and professional. 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 two GISD students!  
     Class/Course Information:
    PLP-D:  We will not have homework. Unlike elementary level dyslexia classes, I am required to collect a minimum of 12 grades per nine weeks (9-daily and 3- tests)  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.  We prepare in class using games and card decks.
