I graduated from Lamar University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts- double majoring in Political Science and Criminal Justice; minor in legal studies (Honors College, Magna Cum Laude, 3.7 GPA). I was a recipient of the Mirabeau B. Lamar Scholarship, granting me a full academic scholarship to attend college. I also received the Jack Brooks Political Science Scholarship, Coca-Cola Johnston Legacy Scholarship, and played for Lamar's NCAA Division 1 soccer team.
I am enrolled in iTeach Texas, a post-bachelor Alternative Certification Program, to obtain my license to teach Early Childhood - 6th grade. I have obtained my statement of eligibility to be hired as a teacher, and passed my content exam. I aspire to begin my first year of teaching in the 2018-2019 school year.
For the last two years, I have been a lead instructor for Soccer Shots Houston, a mobile company delivering soccer classes to children ages 2 to 8 years old. The organization serves approximately 6,000 families in the greater Houston area; and 335,000 nationwide. I am responsible for the growth and development of over 300 players each season. Our curriculum focuses on character development, skill building; and developmentally appropriate techniques.
I specialize in general elementary, high school AP (English, American History, Human Geography, Psychology, Government), hard of hearing, and special needs tutoring. In high school, I received 27 hours of Advanced Placement (AP) credit and participated in a myriad of extracurricular activities. I have extensive childcare experience, and my CPR/First Aid certification is valid December 2017-December 2019.
