I've been teaching since 2002. I have experience in a variety of grades but have established roots in Kindergarten (10 years). I enjoy creating many of my documents. I have experience with AVID, Cornell Notes, WICOR, CAFE, PLC, Data teams, MAP, ST Math, Compass Learning, Treasures, Envision, DRA, Open Court.
My teaching style is interactive and engaging; it has to be in Kindergarten! One of my favorite things about full day Kinder, is the day flies by because I'm constantly busy but in a good way.
Magna Cum Laude graduate in Psychology.
My senior year in college, I studied under a school psychologist at the Transitional Learning Center TLC, school for homeless children, but spent most of my time helping out in the K-1 classroom. I fell in love with the classroom environment. Upon graduating, I returned to get my teaching credential.
I'm the mother of 3 very active children ages 10, 14, and 17 who participate in sports, school clubs, and lots of extracurricular activities (which means I do a lot of driving). I am also the Box Tops coordinator for my 10 yr old's school. At my school, I'm on Leadership as well as several committees. I really enjoy my work environment, the staff is like a family. Positive relationships at work have the biggest effect on student learning!
