"I FACILITATE THINKING, I ENGAGE MINDS, I LISTEN TO QUESTIONS, I ENCOURAGE RISK, I SUPPORT STRUGGLE, I CULTIVATE DREAMS AND I LEARN EVERYDAY. I TEACH." - UNKNOWN
WELCOME! I am so excited to the Collaboration (resource) teacher here at The Academy of Nola Dunn! Below I just want to tell you a little bit more about me! My passion for teaching all started when I came to help my mom in her elementary classroom on a day off when I was in High School. She had a child with Autism in her class, and we hit it off right from the start. Ever since then, I have wanted to be a teacher and to learn more about how I can foster growth in children and help them overcome any learning obstacles they may face. This experience lead me towards my fantastic journey at Tarleton State University and toward their Education Program where I have fallen deeper in love with education. I graduated from Tarleton State University in May of 2016 with my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood education with All Level Special Education (from Pre-k to 12th grade).
I completed my Student Teaching in 2nd grade at Godley Elementary and Middle/High School Life Skills at the High School in Godley ISD. I am an avid reader, I love books of all genres and all age levels. I love spending time with my family, making crafts, and baking. I am excited to begin my teaching journey here at Nola Dunn!
