First of all, I would like to welcome you to our class! I am looking forward to an exciting year with everyone!
I graduated from University of Houston-Downtown with a Bachelor degree in Marketing. After graduation, I immediately enrolled in ACT-Houston to earn my alternative education certification. I realized half way through my degree that something was missing. I realized in a variety of different ways that I was meant to help people learn! I am certified to teach Pre-K through 6th grade and I am also ESL certified. I was a special education para the first year at Timber Creek and was able to see and work with students and teachers in almost every grade. This will be my 3rd year as a classroom teacher and my 2nd year in 4th grade.
On a more personal note, my husband and I have been married for just over five years. I have a step-son named Devin who will be a junior this year (YIKES!) and a Boxer named Daisy (who is my baby girl)! I am a proud mom of a precious little boy, Knox Watson Qualls, who will be celebrating his 2nd birthday on September 7. In our spare time, we love to spend time with our families and we are also big slow pitch softball players. We both play in a league at least once a week and play with tournament teams when we have the extra time. We are big sports fans in general but I love football!! GO TEXANS!!
Hope and inspiration are two things that all people need, no matter their age.
I feel that as a teacher it would be my obligation to strive to provide my students with the belief that anything is possible and any goal is attainable through hard work, dedication and commitment to the task at hand. Inspiring a young person to achieve goals they might have thought as out of their reach is not only an obligation of all teachers but also should be as rewarding for the teacher as it is for the student.
Just a friendly reminder. Texian Time Machine is this Friday, May 5th. Students need to wear their class t-shirts. Also, we will be outside for several hours, there should be tents set up for shade but you might want to apply sunscreen Friday morning. Also, students need to bring along a water bottle and a snack. This is a student only event, we promise to share pictures; Field day, Step up party, End of the Year Party, 4th grade Awards, and 4th grade Clap Out are all events you more than welcome to attend. :-)
