TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My passion, drive and inspiration come from the classroom. It is a fast paced, exciting and ever-changing place where teachers should be learning side by side with their students. I have been teaching and learning in 3-8th grade for the last thirteen years and can't see myself doing anything else, well besides creating resources for teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am an interactive teacher who loves using project based learning and simulations to teach math, science and social studies. I am a huge advocate for using reading and writing workshop methods to teach Language Arts. I also enjoy integrating art, music and drama into all subject areas.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Western Washington University to obtain my undergraduate degree in English and my teaching license in secondary education. Later I obtained my elementary license, ELL and math endorsements. I've also attended the Teachers College Summer Institute in NYC and was trained by the leading think tank in writing workshop today.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I currently live in the Bay Area with my husband and four year old. We love the outdoors!
