Graduated from University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Bachelor's Degree in Education
Master's Degree from Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) in Science Education
This is my 19th year as a teacher... all in 5th grade. I spent 10 years at Southside ISD and am now in my 9th year here at Carroll Bell.
I was born and raised in San Antonio, all my schooling has been here. After graduating from Holmes High School, I attended a few years of college and then tried a few other professions. Returning to college, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education and began my favorite career... teaching. 9 years ago, I returned to school to get my Master's Degree in Science Education. Currently, I teach 3 sections of Science for our 5th grade and love it! I call our students "CSIs" or Cool Science Investigators. We have a blast in the lab, so come by and check us out!
Our 5th grade list is a littledifferent than the district list. It has fewer items that make it moremanageable for you. When shopping, please try to stick to these items. Ihave added a link to Amazon.com if you'd like to order all the suppliesin a group.
Attached is our welcome letter for ourupcoming 5th graders. We are so excited to have them with us! It willbe a fabulous year!
