I have been a teacher for eleven years. I love teaching and enjoy how rewarding it can be. Management has been a struggle of mine, and I will share ideas and resources that have I used that have helped me. I enjoy using technology in the classroom and am lucky enough to have iPads for students to use. Some students truly blossom with technology assistance. I have taught seven years in first grade, and four years in kindergarten.
My management style is a mix of assertive discipline, positive discipline, using some rewards and consequences. Creating an environment of trust, comfort, and predictable routines are some factors I take into consideration, when teaching. It seems to me that teachers that have confidence and concern, balanced with respect and professionalism, help students the most.
I have received various teacher attendance awards.
I graduated from California State University Northridge. After I received my credential, I started teaching and have been teaching ever since.
I love chocolate and ice cream. : )
