TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent almost 10 years in the corporate-tech world before I finally gave in to my inner voice that kept telling me that I had to find a way to do more with my life. 14 years ago I began my new career as a teacher. Though I began as a Social Studies teacher, it wasn't long before I realized that schools needed teachers who loved reading and writing to pass that passion on to their students. Now I've been teaching English for the past 12 years. I've taught every level, including EL students, but currently I'm teaching Juniors and Seniors.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my teaching, I try to find ways to teach the reading and writing skills students will need to be successful after high school with the technology skills they will need to be successful in college and the workplace. I always try to ask myself, "How will they be able to use this skill I'm teaching them after they leave my classroom?" This year I've added a new component to my teaching. In response to the ridiculous class sizes that I've learned will never go away, I'm adding a workshop component to my classroom. This way I can spend more time teaching difficult topics to smaller groups of students, and less time worrying that students may 'fall through the cracks' in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The best honor I am given is when my students come back from college and say, "my college English class is so easy; we're doing everything you already taught us last year!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a degree in English St. Mary's College where I loved every minute of school. I went back 10 years later and got my Teaching Credential in English and Social Studies, and a Master's in Liberal Studies. I'm also a certified Instructor for the CSU Expository Reading and Writing Program and I'm working on becoming a Google Certified Educator.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love to learn new things. Whether it is learning to make an easel for my classroom, reading a book about something new I want to teach, or learning a new tech app I can teach my students, my passion for learning if unstoppable. As a mother of a 6th grade boy and a 5th grade girl that I absolutely adore, I try to always be the teacher I want for my children.
