School: L.V. Stockard Middle School
I strive on a daily basis to provide students with the best academic instruction possible and emotional support. I think it is important that as a teacher I am constantly improving the way I teach and the ways I can prepare students to be college ready. Therefore, I seek out help from colleagues on a regular basis and I get involved in my school and the education system. This year I will be the TEI Teacher Representative, an AVID site team member, and a new teacher mentor at my school. One of my main focuses is to build confidence in students so that they are willing to take academic risks and collaborate with and learn from their peers. I am passionate about my students' education and therefore, I do all that I possibly can to give my students the best possible education.
