Hello Parents & Students,

    I am so excited to be a part of the Titan family. This is my 15th year in education. My family and I moved to the Denton community from Colorado just a few years back, yeehaw! For the last few years, I taught at Ryan High School and was a school counselor at Navo Middle School . Prior, I was at Castle View High School where I was involved in Student Government, AP, Art Honor Society, Art Department Chair and Visual & Performing Arts Academy Lead. While there, I also started a non-profit organization, titled Stars for Douglas County, to benefits the art students in Douglas County, Colorado. I received my undergraduate degree in Biology & Art with emphasis in Secondary Education at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. I lived in Michigan for most of my childhood, go Lions! I finished my Masters in Curriculum & Instruction in 2008, and completed my Counseling degree at Texas Women’s University this past year.

    In the summer I stay busy painting, traveling, and keeping up with my two kids. Along with being passionate about education, my hobbies include yoga, skiing, hiking, scuba diving and just about any activity that comes my way. I couldn’t manage all of these activities with out my supportive husband. I am very happy to be a part of Navo Middle School and Denton community.

    Go Titans!

    4. In your journal, create 1 SMART Goal for personal improvement in a wellness area.

    ExplainSMART Goal. S= Specific, M = Measurable, A = Attainable
    R = Relevant, Rigorous, Realistic, and Results Focused, T = Timely andTrackable

    Example: Here is a practicalexample, starting with a typical, but not especially SMART, goal: I will do better on my reportcard in the next marking period. Here is away to make it SMARTer: Inthe next marking period, I will get at least a C on all my math tests, and atleast a B on most of my quizzes and homework assignments.But it's not SMART yet because it has no action plan orbenchmarks. Here is a pretty SMART goal:

    In the nextmarking period, I will take careful notes and review them at least two daysbefore tests and quizzes so that I can ask the teacher questions about what Idon't understand. I will do my math homework before I do things with friends,and when I hand it in, I will ask the teacher about anything I am not sureabout. When I get anything wrong, I will make sure to ask the teacher, or oneof my classmates how they got the right answer.
