Welcome to 1st Grade!
I just finished my 7th year here at Santo (3-1st Grade, 4-Pre K). I taught 1 year in PPCD (Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities) at Central Elementary in Stephenville. I graduated from Tarleton State University in May of 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in interdisciplinary Studies. My certifications are EC-4, ESL, and SpecEd EC-12. I am also a certified ABA therapist for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have wanted to be a teacher every since I was in Pre K, and still have a passion for it this many years later!!!
I have a wonderful husband, Joseph, (my high school sweetheart) who I have been married to for 12 years! We have three amazing kids (Alyssa-6th grade, Kase-Kinder, and Avalee-2 in December). I live a pretty busy life, but wouldn't change it for the world. Our little family enjoys spending time together, especially outdoors (camping, hunting, fishing...).
I am so excited to have your child, and can not wait to see what this school year has in store for us!! I will be teaching the Reading/Language Arts portion this year, with Ms. Brawner teaching the Math/Science/Social Studies portion. Excited for another GREAT year in 1st Grade!
