I have taught Kindergarten for 22 years and I love it. I have also taught Pre-K and 2nd grade. I have presented at the California Kindergarten Conference, EISS (Early Intervention for School Success) Research Institute, and I am an EISS California State Trainer.
I believe in an integrated curriculum that is hands on, developmentally appropriate brain compatible, (Thanks to Dr. Pat Wolfe for the use of her term) and filled with concrete activities that meet state standards.
I have had the honor of winning Teacher of the Year two different times in the Sulphur Springs School District. Additionally I was given one of Walmartâ€™s Teacher of the Year awards. I was chosen as one of five EISS Level 2 Trainers for the State of California.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree, and teaching credentials in both Elementary and Secondary Education.
I am a wife, a mom, a Kindergarten teacher, and most importantly Grandma to 8 practically perfect grandchildren.
