4th Grade News:
I am super excited to be at Amy Parks Heath Elementary as the 4th-grade math instructor.
I believe that mathematicians have the right to...
1. be confused.
2. make mistakes while learning from them.
3. speak, listen, and be heard. Everyone's thoughts and strategies matter.
4. write, do, and represent only what makes sense to them.
I look forward to creating an environment where students feel cared for, empowered, challenged, and inspired to be their best. Thank you for entrusting your precious ones with our dedicated team.
What brought you to APHE? My family recently relocated to Rockwall from Florida because my husband, Tim, became a Math Professor & Department Chair of Teaching and Learning at Southern Methodist University. Before the move, I served as a research assistant in cognitively guided mathematics instruction at Florida State University and as a literacy facilitator/coach through the James Patterson Literacy Challenge at the University of Florida. I have taught grades K-5, provided professional development to schools, mentored new teachers, and observed graduate interns. I have presented twice at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conferences because I am so passionate about math education!
