Why I am committed to Wilson K-8
• The students and teachers at Wilson demonstrate care and consideration, not only for each other but for their community. They have shown that they are open to new ideas, standup for what they think is right, and are welcoming to a diverse academic environment. It is an amazing place to work!
My Defining Moment in Education
• My defining moment in education occurred as I watched my students advance from regionals to go on and win at the Texas State Science and Engineering Fair. It was the desire and commitment to further their research of their project after that win that showed how they had intrinsically instilled a love of learning and were on their way to becoming life-long learners.
