I am so excited to start a new school year! I am a certified Special Education teacher serving as the Inclusion specialist for both 5th and 2nd grades. I am proud to be co-teaching with Mrs. Runner in 5th grade for Reading, Math and Science and with Ms. Valadez in 2nd grade for Reading and Math. I visit students in their classrooms and work with them in small groups, providing any modifications or accommodations as needed. Our primary purpose is to provide continuous instruction across the curriculum within the classroom to meet their individual needs appropriately in orde for them to be successful learners. My goal is to work with their general education teachers to provide learning opportunities to tap into each students' learning potential.
Some personal tidbits
I have been teaching for 9 years, the past 6 years in Northside ISD. I am very proud to say this is my first year at Mireles Elementary.
I graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University where I received a Bachelors Degree in Communication Arts and a Master of Education.
I believe parent-teacher communication plays a key role in your child's academic success. Please feel free to contact me when you have any questions and/or concerns regarding the education of your child.
I love my job and my favorite part is getting to know all of your children. I am committed to helping each one of them succeed. I firmly believe that every student can learn and I aim to include them in the goal-setting process.
Please know that I am always available to discuss your child's progress. My conference period is 1:05-1:50 (Please call or email to set up a conference).
