TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm currently an Innovation TOSA in Campbell Union School District in California, where I've worked for nearly 10 years. I am very lucky to work in a district that supports innovation and creative teaching! I've taught Kindergarten, 3rd grade and 5th grade, and am passionate about project-based learning, computer science and the STEAM fields.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on, real-life applications and connections, project-based, collaborative, and inquiry-based with plenty of technology integration!
