8th grade ESL US History

Welcome back returning students and welcome all new students! I am very excited about staring my 5th year at Canyon Vista. This year I have many hats, I am the ESL Coordinator for the campus, the ESL Department Chair, and I teach ESL US History and an ESL Study Skills class. I am also the Debate Club Sponsor It is going to be a full fun year.

I began teaching 17 years ago at Texas State, San Marcos and loved it so much I went back and earned my teaching certificate. I have taught 5th grade English Language Arts and Reading, 5th and 6th grade Gifted and Talented, 7th grade Science, 6th grade English Language Arts and Reading and 8th grade US History.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a minor in Child Development. I have a Master's degree in Child and Adolescent Counseling and Addiction Counseling. I was a child and adolescent therapist in Texas before teaching. I am married and the mother of five and when I am not teaching I enjoy reading, biking, swimming, movies, and hanging out with my kiddos.
