Welcome to Creekside Park Junior High School!
I am so thrilled to be your sixth grade English Language Arts teacher this year! Throughout our journey this year, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you even better. My goal is to make your first year in junior high school enriched with greater knowledge and memories to cherish for a lifetime. I just want to take time to introduce myself and give you the chance to get to know me better.
I grew up in Houston and attended schools in Fort Bend ISD. Later, I graduated from the University of Houston with my undergraduate degree in education as well as my Master’s degree in Administration and Supervision. I was fortunate to be able to teach in Fort Bend ISD for seven years before moving to Chicago where I taught 5th grade. Even though winters were extremely cold, I loved living in the “windy city”. Later, I moved to England for four years and was able to travel to many different countries giving me the opportunity to learn and appreciate the cultures of people from around the world. What an extraordinary experience, and I loved every minute!
After a few moves between Fairfax, Virginia and Dallas teaching 5th and 6th grade, my family and I finally settled back to Houston. I have two, wonderful sons, Nicholas and Alexander. Nicholas will be in 8th grade at Creekside Park Junior High, and Alexander will be in the 5th grade at Timber Creek Elementary School. Besides teaching and spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and photography. I look forward to teaching and getting to know all of you. We’re going to have a Super Sixth Grade Year at Creekside Park Junior High School!
