Profession: Educational Consultant, On-Line Teacher, Business Owner
Teaching Experience: I have worked in education for 17 years. I taught in elementary school for 15 years. Currently I travel around Texas as an educational consultant teaching student camps and teacher seminars for reading and writing. I also work for VIPKID as an on-line teacher to students in China. I teach them English in a 1-1 setting via webcam. Also, I work in the Children's Ministry at my church with children ages 9-11.
Interests: I have two children who I stay busy with taking them to lacrosse and soccer. We have a dog, guinea pig, hermit crab, and two birds. When we are able, we love to travel. Some of our favorite places to go to are Atlanta, Georgia and Destin, Florida, though we'd love to travel the world! In my free time I enjoy running. I've completed many 5Ks and one half-marathon.
I grew up with family who LOVED to cook! So cooking and baking are passions of mine as well.
When I was in high school I traveled to Bergen, Norway as an exchange student. This experience began my love of meeting new people and learning about different cultures.
Education: I graduated from Texas A&M University with my B.S. in Recreation, Parks, & Tourism Sciences. I received my teaching certificate in Early Childhood-4th grade learning as well as (ESL)English as a Second Language from Region IV and St. Thomas University in Houston, Texas.
Spoken Languages: English (Native)
