TEACHING EXPERIENCE

With a decade of upper elementary grade teaching experience, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I love sharing with others. I have taught in both public and private schools in both urban and suburban areas. The vast majority of my experience has been teaching in 4th grade. Although, I have spent a year teaching a 4th/5th grade split, and a year teaching 5th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is very inquiry based and hands on. I love being able to cross curricular content to meet several areas in any given theme or activity. I also employ several different learning modalities into my teaching to ensure that I reach all of my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The biggest honor or award I receive is from the students I teach. When they are struggling with a concept and the light finally goes on, there is no better feeling. I also graduated an accelerated teaching program at CSUH (California State University Hayward) with honors (cum laude).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After being a struggling student myself, I knew early on that I wanted to become a teacher to help others go through what I experienced myself. However, once I graduated high school...I was done with school for awhile. I took four years off and got a job in a radiology office. After realizing I wasn't passionate about what I was doing, I enrolled back into college. I spent 4 years completing my AA, BA, and teacher credentialing program. I have been teaching ever since.

When I am not in front of a classroom teaching to the future of our country, or behind a screen creating activities and lessons for those future life changers, you can find me at home spending time with my family. I have an amazing and supportive husband, who even helps me grade papers when I bring them home. I also love playing and snuggling with my son and daughter.
