Welcome to my 3rd grade class! This is my sixth year at Brown Elementary and I love working here. "Happiness is loving what you do!" I love coming to work every day and experiencing my students' learning. I teach English, Language Arts, Reading and Social Studies. I grew up in East Texas and returned as fast as I could to raise our four boys here. I have taught third grade for 9 years. My main goal for my third graders is for them to develop a love for reading. When this happens, it is magical. I know that having a love for reading will help them blossom into anything they want to be.
