Howdy! I am so happy to be here at C. E. King Middle School! This is my fifth year as the instructional coach for ELA and social studies at KMS. I have been in education for thirteen years and have been part of Sheldon ISD for seven years. I previously taught 8th grade ELA here at King Middle for two years before becoming the instructional coach.
I am a proud member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2005. Whoop! I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a literacy focus from the University of Texas at Arlington.
As an instructional coach, I work with the ELA and social studies teachers to build instructional strategies into their lessons. Being able to still be in a classroom setting is the best part of this job; that is where my heart is. I work with amazing teachers that bring language arts/reading and social studies to life. You will see me floating around the campus in all grade level classrooms and teacher planning meetings.
