This will be my 8th year of teaching at Puster and I am more than excited and ready to welcome our new 3rd grade students!  I student taught in Springdale, AR while I was working towards my Master's Degree, which I completed in May of 2015.

While receiving my Master of Arts in Teaching Degree, I also graduated with an endorsement in S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering, math) Education from The University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education Degree from the University of Arkansas in May of 2014. In addition, I minored in Human Development and Family Sciences during my undergraduate studies. As a teacher, I believe in:

 

  • inviting all students into a safe environment
  • treating my students with respect and dignity
  • building personal relationships with each of my students in order to know their interests and personal learning needs
  • having a relationship with each student's family is important for the personal growth of each student                                                                                                                                                                                                  

My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for over half of our lives now! We have two amazing children, Collins (3) and Ledger (1). They keep us really busy outside of school and we love spending time just playing with them and watching them experience the world and explore their surroundings. Being a mom is one of the biggest blessings of all! 

 

When I am not at Puster, I really enjoy spending time with my husband, my children, and family that live close by, doing things like shopping, exercising, or spending time outdoors with our 6 year old Border Collie, Maverick. I grew up in Plano, Texas and attended Plano Senior High School. I love living close to my childhood home and my family. I have an older brother and 2 younger sisters. 

 

This year at Puster is going to be a great year! I can't wait to meet my new class of 3rd grade students and get to know their families. Last year, as my family grew, I stepped into a new role and taught Kindergarten for the first time. While I loved Kindergarten, and am so thankful I now have that experience and grew to love the littles of the school, I am very much looking forward to being back 'home' in Third Grade where I taught for 6 years prior to my 1-year switch. I look forward to learning more about my students and growing as a professional this year!

 

As teachers, we are challenged to come up with one word to describe our upcoming school year. I've decided I'm going to go with the word accountability. I think this word highlights many aspects of my life, within school and outside of it. Not only am I holding myself accountable for higher standards and achievement in our classroom, but I am going to be holding students accountable for their learning and self-reflection of their growth this year. It's going to be an amazing year and I'm so happy to cheer, again, T-H-I-R-D Third Grade is the place to be! Woop Woop!! (You'll learn this at Puster Pride :) ).
