My years spent in the Austin Teacher Program provided the perfect foundation for my career as a professional educator. Under the guidance of skilled professors, I learned the value of utilizing critical problem-solving skills, designing engaging, challenging and meaningful work, and treating students and colleagues with respect. My entire career has been with Denison Independent School District. It has been my pleasure to serve in the roles of Spanish Instructor, Curriculum Coordinator, Assistant Director of Instruction, and now Director of Instruction. Regardless of the role, those lessons learned years ago in the Austin Teacher Program have served me well. I seize any opportunity I am offered to steer a future educator in the direction of the ATP!
