I am a teacher at Wiley Middle School and will begin my 14th year there this school year. I am certified to teach Math, LA, Science, and Social Studies for grades 4-8. I have taught 6th and 7th grade Math. I also have Special Education certification and am a part of the Wiley Special Education department. I am the liason between our department and the Wiley 6th grade Math department, and have developed curriculum and testing for a wide range of students. Both at school and privately, I have a great deal of experience tutoring individual students.
I spend most of my time working with struggling students. To see them succeed, and gain in confidence, is very rewarding.

When working with a new student, I talk to the parent to see where the need is. I find out from the parent and student where they are successful as well as struggling. I know where the "roadblocks" typically are and have multiple ways to deal with them. Unless there is something unique to a teacher, I am generally familiar with the "lingo" that takes place in the classroom. Examples would be PEMDAS, for order of operations, and KCF (keep change flip) for dividing fractions.
I have a BBA-Marketing from Texas State. I received my teacher certifications in 2006. I am certified to teach Math, LA, Science, and Social Studies grades 4-8. I also have Special Education Certification K-12. I have been a teacher at Wiley Middle School for the past 13 years. I am an Inclusion Teacher in the Special Education department and have co-taught all the core subjects. Daily, most of my time is spent working with students, individually and small group, who are struggling.
