Welcome to my teacher page. I'm so excited to start this new year with you, learning and growing.
This is my 4th year at Argyle and my 7th year teaching. There are a lot of things that I love about teaching, but one of the things I love most is getting to show my students how fun History can be! When I went through school, History was very dry and boring. It wasn't until I started to experience our history through travel, meeting people, and having experiences that helped display to me our rich history. It was then that I knew I needed to teach it. I wanted to ignite a love for History in students and give them the experiences that I missed out on in school. We will try new things this year. I will learn alongside your student. We will play, we will grow and we will learn meaningfully. I cannot wait to see what unfolds this year for us!
A little bit about me: I live in Harvest with my husband, two daughters and a new French Bulldog puppy named Roosevelt. My oldest daughter is attending Hilltop as a first grader. I love to read, create, travel, and spend time with my family. I love to tell stories (hence the History teacher in me) and I love to see plays and musicals (my husband, not so much...). I am a huge fan of all things Texas, including sports teams. My allegiance lies with the Mavericks, Rangers and Cowboys. One interesting fact about me: I am a descendant of William F. Cody, aka Buffalo Bill (with the famous Wild West Show that starred Annie Oakley). I love to explore my family history and I encourage my students to do this as well.
In the pages to the right, you will find the Google classroom calendar for your child's class. I will post weekly lesson plans that you can access to see what we have in store for the week. If you would like, you can also sign-up to get google alerts through the classroom. I will post many updates on there. I am currently teaching one virtual class and all the others are in person. Be sure to click the correct links depending on if you are virtual or in-person
I can't wait to get to know you and your kid. It's going to be an incredible year. Go Eagles!
