Hello and welcome to our Silver Creek First Grade team. I am excited to be working alongside Shayli Tilghman (our team leader) and Mr. Robert Popp. This year may look a little different than any other but it will be memorable and certainly something to tell our grandchildren about. I have been teaching for many years. I started out in elementary after I graduated from college (Texas Tech University) and taught until I had my two children. I stayed home with them for a number of years before following them through preschool and then going to an aide position for several years so that I could single-parent them well and be available and flexible. Once my children got into high school I began teaching in my own classroom again.
I am certified to teach in the 1-8 grade realm with specializations in Special Education and teaching English as a Second Language. Obtaining these specializations was a timely need that was met, but ones that I am so proud of.
I have recently discovered the joy of e-reading and audiobooks. I power walk with two different great friends (Jill and Gina) and recently picked up bike riding again. I also Zumba in Azle and LOVE my instructors there and making new friends.
I love Silver Creek Elementary and the PEOPLE that are here! I want to be available to serve you and your student and hope that you will address me with your needs.
