MY JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
I am a firstgrade teacher and teach all subject areas. On my campus I am the Lead Mentor Teacher, this is my fifth year involved with districtwide “Techno5” technology project integrating math, science, and other areas with technology. I am also a curriculum writer for AISD, and a Teacher Induction Program (TIP) trainer for new first grade teachers in the district.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT AISD:
I love having the opportunity to work with all of the dedicated teachers throughout the district. I especially enjoyed being a part of the AISD cohort when I was going through the National Board certification process. Having the support of my facilitator, mentor, and cohort members was invaluable. With their help and support, I was able to certify and am looking forward to applying for my recertification this year.
THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT THE WORK I DO:
I love being able to make a difference in the lives of my young students. When my students feel successful I know I have succeeded.
WHAT I'D SAY TO A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE:
AISD is a wonderful place to work, whether you are a novice teacher or an experienced teacher transferring from another district or state. There are great programs in place to provide the support necessary to be successful. I also love how each campus is unique with their own traditions, activities, and community. There is a place for everyone!
LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:
