I have taught reading intervention for grades 3-5, 3rd grade (self-contained), and currently I teach Pre-K Unified (at-risk and special education), which is my favorite! I am licensed in Early Childhood, SPED, and ESOL.
I love for children to learn through hands-on experiences. I strive to keep them engaged through frequent movement and activity changes. Sneaking learning in through fun and games is my favorite way to teach!
I am proud to teach at a Leader in Me school; watching my 4- and 5-year-olds apply the 7 Habits in their daily interactions is incredibly rewarding. Pre-K students have the capacity to understand so much more than we give them credit for!
I have a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education Unified with Special Education.
I have worked with preschool-aged children since I was in high school, so it is no surprise that early childhood is my absolute favorite age to teach! I have two littles of my own at home, and my husband also teaches Pre-K, so my whole life is about early childhood!
