Professional

Education is my passion and pursuit. I live by & prioritize my professional life by three driving goals:

1. Advocate for ELLs

2. Empower ELLs

3. Support teachers of ELLs

I teach English as a Second Language at Rountree Elementary for Pre-K through 6th grade. I hold Texas teaching certifications in Early Childhood through 4th Generalist and ESL, 4th through 8th Generalist and ESL, and Gifted and Talented.

I graduated December 2007 from the University of North Texas summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies for Early Childhood - 4th grade ESL Education as well as a minor in Spanish.

I joined Allen ISD as an ESL teacher in January of 2008. Teaching English as a Second Language is an exciting and rewarding profession for which I am an avid advocate.

I believe that education plays a vital role in creating a better tomorrow, today.

Personal

I love to travel! Here are a few of my favorite destinations

Mexico - Many of my wonderful students are from this beautiful & complex country.  My visit to Mexico in 2010 was far too short!

Belgium - My brother & sister in law were blessed with a fellowship to study in  Leuven. It was exciting to be there for his first masters graduation in 2011!

France - The Eiffel Tower was so interesting to see in person!

 

Italy - What wonderful gelato!

Jamaica - Our mission group worked with other groups from around the world to help build a school here.

Guatemala- The sweet kiddos I taught in Guatemala will always have a special place in my heart. Even though I moved back to the United States in 2005, my experiences in Guatemala continue to help me be a better language teacher every day.

Canada - Niagara Falls is breathtaking!

The Dominican Republic - There's nothing like snorkling in the clear waters of a Punta Cana beach! Plus, peacocks walk the premises!

I also enjoy taking my wonderful puppies, Floriana & Massimo, to different dog parks, having great conversations, all kinds of experiments in arts & crafts, clean comedy, ancient cultures, surprising facts & statistics, sharing photographs, Pintrest, and discovering treasures in unlikely places!

Massimo & Floriana!
