    • Bio
      • I received my bachelor degree from Texas Tech University. Last year was my first year in a classroom at Riverside middle school, teaching math. I co-taught 6th grade accelerated, 7th grade Pre-AP, Pre-Algebra, and Geometry. I look forward to an exciting new year and the challenges that are ahead of us, knowing that together we will conquer all. I teach to develop and prepare the future for what is to come. Certain teachers that I had provided me with lessons that still resonate today. I hope to "pay it forward" and be a positive and supportive teacher just as those teachers were for me.
