TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught kindergarten through 3rd grade for 21 years in California. For the past 16 years I've taught 2nd and 3rd grades at an amazing public, multi-age, parent participation K-8 school. I loop with half of my class each year, which helps create a friendly, familial, and trusting atmosphere in our classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a multi-age classroom teacher, I help make the curriculum fit the child, rather than the child fit the curriculm. I encourage parents to volunteer in our classroom and be a major part of their child's educational experience. It takes a village.
