Hello my name is
I will be a 7th/8th-grade teacher this year. I am very excited to be working at Resaca Middle School this year and looking to a wonderful year. This will be my 5th year teaching middle school science and I hope to pass on the love and understanding of science to all my students. I was born in Brownsville, Texas and at the age of five moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin where I lived until the age of 19. After graduating high school I joined the United States Marine Corps in January 2002, I deployed to Kuwait and Iraq where I served a total of 15 months in the middle east. After four years in the Marine Corps, I moved back to Brownsville and started going to college at the University of Texas at Brownsville where I received an associate in teaching, associates in liberal arts, and a Bachelor of Science Education. I taught one year in Los Fresnos in 6th-grade science and two years in Corpus Christi in 8th-grade science. My certifications are in 4-8th science and 4-8th generalist. My goal for students is to have them reach their highest potential and think independently/critically as well has them gaining an understanding of science that will prepare them for high school and beyond.
My hobbies include; Spending time with Family, Fishing, Biking, Kayaking, Hunting, Swimming, Chess, Gardening, Bird-watching, as well as anything outdoors. I will be sponsoring Chess and Gardening clubs after school this year.
I am available for conferences before/after school as well as during my planning period.
