Teacher Ambassador

Quote Bubble Icon

I teach in my district because it is literally a great place to work. The opportunities for professional growth and development are second to none. As a teacher evolves on a campus and within the district, the family-like infrastructure is there to support and sustain that trajectory. In Alief ISD, you are only limited by your imagination and work ethic.

      Why I Teach

      When I teach, I try to get my students to focus on doing one thing well, which gives them a sense of accomplishment and motivates them to conquer other formidable areas of both their academic and personal lives. Too often, mostly due to circumstances beyond their control, my students arrive to me in a fragile state of being and have rarely had a real win. I make it my personal business to ensure that each and every one of them has every opportunity to have that experience. I am a true believer that all students can learn, no matter their situation or circumstance.
