This is my 16th year teaching in public school. I have moved around form middle to upper elementary and now am happily parked in second grade. I now work in a 50/50 Spanish/English dual language program. I am the English side of the partnership. I am enjoying it greatly and seeing the benefits for sets of students. I got my NBCT endorsement in 2013 and am proud of that accomplishment. I am an advocate of collaboration and teachers empowering other teachers.
I love using humor, dramatics, and a smidgen of sarcasm (my students all understand it when they are through with me)!
