This is my third year to teach at West Middle School. I have 27 years experience in education. I have earned an Associate of Applied Science from McLennan Community College, as well as, a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M, Commerce. I hold the following Texas Educator Certificates:  English Language Arts and Reading (4-8), English Language Arts and Reading (8-12), English as a Second Language Supplemental (EC-12), American Sign Language (EC-12), Hearing Impaired (PK-12),  and Elementary Self-Contained (1-6).
 
Being able to communicate and express thoughts and ideas is key for all of us no matter what our goals are. Reading Language Arts is the place to develop these skills. We are going to have an amazing year exploring listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking skills.
