TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching grades 7 and 8 Language Arts and Social Studies at De Anza Academy of Technology & the Arts in Ventura, California since 2001. I have also briefly taught high school ESL (grades 9-12), and I spent one month teaching English in Moscow, Russia.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My class mission statement is: To build a community of students who embrace the process of learning…who are eager to learn, enjoy the act of learning, and feel success for what they have learned. I try to make learning fun through cooperative group work, hands-on projects, and creative writing.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

On September 7, 2011, I received the honor of "Teacher of the Month" (nominated by my principal through the Ventura Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation). I was given certificates from the senator, house of representatives, and county representatives along with several generous gifts from community organizations. I have also been serving as the department chair and English Language Arts District Liaison since 2003. I have also served as a Mentor to first and second year teachers. I have also had the responsibility as Technology Peer Coach and GATE Liaison.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California with a BA in English and Art supplementary authorization. I received my teaching credential there as well.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love my students, I love teaching, and my goal is to make learning fun for all!
