Dripping Springs Education Foundation Grants & ATPE Innovative Technology Grant
iPad Grants

I have written and received two iPad Grants for the 4th grade students of Dripping Springs Elementary -  one from Dripping Springs Education Foundation for 8 iPads and the other from ATPE for 4 iPads.  This school year our 4th grade students will be using iPads daily in the classroom.  The iPads will be used to promote and support student engagement, to increase reading interest and reading fluency in Literacy Centers, to develop student inquiry based investigations and projects, and to facilitate student collaboration and problem solving.  Students will use the iPads in small groups and individually for independent projects, enrichment and intervention. 

Thank you Dripping Springs Education Foundation and ATPE (Association of Texas Professional Educators) for their support of technology in the classroom.  

LEGO Architecture Studio Grant

Last year I also received an Innovative Teacher Grant from the Dripping Springs Education Foundation for LEGO Architecture Studio.  These LEGO kits will be used in the classroom to support STEM projects.  Students will used their creative imaginations and ideas to design and build structures to support the classroom content.  THANK YOU DSEF for supporting teachers and students!

Professional Biography

All About Me -

I live in Dripping Springs with my husband, Chris and our 4 children.  My husband is an engineer at Freescale.  I graduated from Southern Methodist University and worked as a CPA for 10 years.  I then stayed home to raise our 4 children.  In 2002, I completed the Region XIII Alternative Certification Program.  I became certified in Special Education in 2003 and EC-4 Generalist in 2005.  I taught special education-resource for 4 years and I am currently teaching 4th grade.  I have four wonderful children -  a son who creates apps for mobile devices at Mutual Mobile, a daughter that graduated with her PhD - Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and is working for NREL in Golden, CO, a daughter who graduated from UT Texas Architecture and is working in Austin and a son who is beginning his Freshman year at UT Texas-Architecture.  All 4 of my children graduated from Dripping Springs High School. 

Interests and Hobbies:  camping, backpacking, quilting, knitting, birding, gardening and baking pies & cookies.  

I am also involved in Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venture Boy Scouts.

Philosophy of Education

Establish a community of learners that collaborate and support different learning styles and abilities.  Plan standards based lessons and activities to achieve mastery of TEKS while developing and improving reading comprehension across all subjects.  Differentiate instruction to provide multiple approaches to content, process and product that encourages critical thinking and problem solving.  

Students will respond and reflect orally and in writing - individually, with partners, and in small groups through journals, problem based learning activities, literature circles and technology.
