Hello!!!  Welcome to our classroom!!  Teaching has always been my passion, and after teaching in San Marcos for the past 12 years, I am so proud to now call myself a Unicorn!

I graduated from undergrad at UTSA in 2005 with a degree in early childhood education, and then went on to get my masters in education at Texas State ten years later.

I am EXTREMELY excited to be living, parenting, and now teaching in New Braunfels, Texas!! Go Unicorns!!

ANYTIME on ClassDojo-Please check out our Class Story on ClassDojo! I will be adding pics and stories as the year progresses.  As a parent, I love seeing what my kiddos are doing during school, so I will share your child's story as much as possible. 

Homework expectations for reading will simply be to enjoy 20 minutes reading a good book.  Getting into a habit of reading at least 20 minutes before bed, can increase comprehension, reading fluency, and student vocabulary tremendously.  Whether you are being read to, reading to yourself, or reading to a sibling, write down your time in your reading log each evening and have a parent or guardian sign the form in your agenda.

Comprehension is an important tool in creating readers.

This is the ability to retell the story, answer questions about the story, and infer meaning.

Here are some things you can do to help your child in all these areas:

  • Students must read every night for at least 20 minutes.  Make this a priority. Leveled readers and library books are going home everyday.  
  • Ask simple questions after they read (who, what, when, where, why, how?)
  • Fluency check by timing them.  Set a stopwatch and time 1 minute.  Have them re-read and see if they can get further in their story.  
  • Watch their reading habits.  Make sure there are no distractions.  Memorizing is not the same as reading.  Be consistent. Remind them reading is thinking: predicting, connecting, visualizing, inferring, questioning, and summarizing.
