I am currently in my 18th year teaching and I have loved every minute of it even if I can't believe I have taught for that long. I have taught 13 years of kindergarten and first grade. The other four years were in upper primary and although most people either love one or the other I have to say, I love both kindergarten and 5th!
I want every student to LOVE coming to school and therefore create a life long love for learning. I believe in hands on learning and creating meaningful experiences for all students.
I was part of the Fulbright Teacher Exchange program and was honored to teach one year in England.
I have a BA in Education, a California teaching credential as well as a Masters degree in Educational Administration.
