     Educational Philosophy:  Every child is gifted; they just unwrap their packages at different times.  My hope is to be patient, caring, and find a fun way to help children learn and parents support their child during the year.  I enjoy sharing ideas with parents to help their child excel.  Everyday is a new day of discovery and taking steps to develop problem solving and comprehension.    

    All About Me

    I have taught 24 years.  This is my 22nd year at Greentree.  I'm a teacher, mom, and someone who loves to watch kids explore and learn.  I graduated from Texas A&M and continued in their Professional Developmental Program.  I worked with the same school as a behavior aide and then taught second grade for two years.  I moved to Kingwood in 1998.  I have found a home here at Greentree.

    Gator Reading Program
    I would like everyone in my class to participate in the Gator Reading Program!  I challenge your family to track all your reading minutes.  Let's be the class that has 100% participation.  Mrs. Rydell would be so proud.
    Please track the minutes that your child reads/and you read to your child for those emerging readers.
    A calendar is available through the library link/and useful links from my website.  There will be on in their blue folder for each month.
    We will visit the library as a whole class on Thursday.  It will be part of our specials.   
               Remember your library book.
