I love the current technology available today. My 6th graders created Glogsters from their online story "Callahan Cousins". They did a great job and really enjoyed it. Their Glogsters contained embedded video where they acted out a scene from the story.
My TouchSystems class did a very innovative PowerPoint Slide with text, graphics, music, and i had them do digital voice on their powerpoint. So basically they read the PPS text which made it much more interesting than having to read. I am a member of TCEA and the Area Wide TCEA Region VII.

I started a TEA certified driving school in 1993. The curriculum consisted of Teen Drivers Education, Adult Driving, and Defensive Driving classes. I employed 7-10 certified teachers each year. My husband and I both taught and managed the curriculum and operation of the school. Over 600 students attended the school throughout each year.
The TEA routine school evaluations were always positive and remained so through the duration of ownership.
We sold our school in 2002 to another driving school in the DFW metroplex.
I taught Advanced 12th English, 9th English, and the first 'At-Risk' 10th English approved by TEA. I also co-wrote the Scope and Sequence for 9th English which was the only one approved and adopted by TEA that year. Several schools in the following years used this Scope and Sequence for 9th English.
I provided homebound instruction to young mothers in the middle school, high school, and New Horizons (Alt. Ed). During this time, there was zero dropout rate and all passed the state test. I also did all PIEMS reports. One of the programs I established was Mothers Tutoring Mothers. My previous students would tutor current young mothers-- great support system!
