As a data-driven and results-oriented professional I aim to leverage the skillset gained from participation in the program to develop and implement effective strategies to fulfill HEB ISD's core value of cultural proficiency, student achievement, and gain leadership quantities that could be transferred to others. The initial leadership path is that of an instructional coach as I continue to grow and have the honor of becoming a campus administrator.
English as a Second Language Certificate
Perspective 2022 graduate for a Principal's Certificate
I was West Handley's Science Lead when I taught 5th Grade Science. I coordinated with upper and lower grade levels to implement and follow with fidelity the standards alignment. I worked closely with 4th grade teachers to embed proper vocabulary, ESL support in scaffolding, and increase the rigor to prepare them to think critically. I worked with lower grades for science content accountability and teaching them how to teach the standards in conjunction with others. I went to conferences like CAST to further develop my content knowledge and collaborate with struggling teachers at the school. In addition I was chosen to lead many projects during my graduate years at Relay GSE. Along those I was chosen to be the opening speaker in the national Relay ceremony which focused on equity and culture in education. Finally, I was an integral voice when it came to leading PLCs in Fort Worth ISD by creating a collaborative culture amongst colleagues that resulted in student's achievement.
The whole second grade team was new except for the team lead and there was a lot of friction at the beginning due to various expertise levels and lack of communication. I worked hard to implement effective communication, organization, and relationship building amongst the team so we could work as a unit. That included having some tough conversations when things were not done correctly and helping a first year teacher with classroom management. I had multiple visitors sent by the principal to observe my lesson plan format, classroom management and engagement.
I worked with the Holiday committee and sponsored the treats with my small business to continue to embark inclusion and unity amongst the whole school.
Planned with a colleague family engagement night including Math Night which was a huge success.
