I have taught 1st grade through 6th grade. I taught contained classroom for first and second grade. I also taught second grade through sixth grade language arts and math for five years.
I believe in using cooperative learning as much as possible. I use Kagan structures often in my classroom.
I am entering into my seventeenth year of teaching. I have a California Clear credential and a Masters in Education.
I am enjoying life on the road right now as my husband performs in the National Tour of Aladdin.
