I am a new teacher to Akins High School. I am excited to be at Akins! I am one of three SCORES teachers at Akins. SCORES (Social Communication Resources and Services) is a program in the Special Education department that supports students on the Autism Spectrum. I am proud to be part of this program and to work with these awesome students!
My background: I have taught middle school ELA Resource and Inclusion classes for 14 plus years and I have been an Inclusion teacher in the areas of middle school Math and Social Studies. In addition to this I have taught SBS type classes for 7 years. I graduated from TAMU with a Bachelor of Science degree.
Personal: I am married and I have two grown daughters. My oldest daughter is finishing up a program to become a nurse while my younger daughter is a senior in college. We have three dogs and a cat and our most visited place is Port Aransas! In my past I have lived and worked in cities of Los Angeles, Dallas, and Houston. My favorite activities are watching my girls play volleyball, water sports/recreation, and traveling when I can.
