washington c1 c2  c3
I am teaching 2nd grade ALL SUBJECTS 

for our  SHARY 2020-2021 STAR STUDENTS.
I assist with coaching our k-6 Chess Team and
coach the 3rd-4th UIL Ready Writing Teams.

We are currently the 2020 State Chess Champions!!!

I'm truly blessed to be teaching at John H. SHARY Elementary.
The following is a brief outline of my career background: 
I have taught 4th and 2nd grade GT-Gifted & Talented, Bilingual, Newcomers
program and served as a New Teacher Mentor. I'm an EC-4 Bilingual certified,
Interdisciplinary Studies Cum Laude Education Major
with an Associates in Fine Arts 
and a member of
Phi Kappa Phi, the nation's oldest, largest,
and most selective
honor society for all academic disciplines & Texas GT Association.
Writing, Reading,  Science, Art,  and Math/STEM are my interests.
                          Math 
My students have enjoyed great success on the local and National level pursuing
Math/Science projects. My first STEM Team was a group of 3rd graders and were
recognized nationally by the Toshiba Explora Vision Competitive program of young
inventors. My second grade class was recognized as an outstanding participant in a
Nano-Technology Poster and Poetry Design Contest. Two of my 2nd grade students were honored as the State and National 1st Place winners! I have coached STEM Teams ranging
from 2nd to 6th grade. I also participated in the first Region One/ UTPA STEM Teachers
Collaboration Project presenting a STEM Fair to the City Of Pharr Commissioners and
community. I had been an active participant in the HESTEC Educator's Roundtable since
2006. Many of my 4th grade students were invited to participate in HESTEC/NASA projects
at the University of Texas -Pan American. I was recognized as the HESTEC Educator of the
Year by the Monitor and HESTEC for promoting a STEM based essay contest.
I also enjoy writing and have been blessed with
 winning several awards in feature and
news writing at the elementary, middle, high
school and university level.
I also wrote a weekly news f
eature for a local paper as part of my professional freelance career.
 
The following are some recognition and awards I received on behalf of
letters of support from team teachers, civic leaders, community
supporters and wonderful , dedicated classroom parents:
I owe all my success to you!
