About Me:

Hello Bray Longhorns! 

This is the beginning of my 4th year as a pre-k instructor, and my 13 year in education in general.  In my first 3 years, I was mostly in after-school programs. I eventually moved into a daycare-pre k setting, after which I transferred to an afterschool ESL program for approximately 5 years. In 2019, I was hired as an aide at our amazing STRIVE campus, where I helped scholars learn how to reflect and grow.  During the 2020-2021 school year I worked in many positions in the district, helping where I could.  This year I have the wonderful opportunity to be with the stellar Bray family as the pre-k teacher.

On a personal note, my entire being is focused on helping my community in any way I can.  Whether that is my local community, my state, or my global community; as long as I am helping I feel fulfilled.  It is absolutely my passion to serve others and make their worlds better.  I love art, science, and SEL.

My personal and professional philosophy is "Love Never Fails."  Also “When one can see no future, all one can do is the next right thing.”-Grand Pabbi(Frozen 2). I believe that when teachers and scholars find what they are passionate about, then that passion and love will carry them through to be successful in whatever they set out to do. Einstein said, "I have no special talents I am only passionately curious.".
