I have been teaching for fourteen years in southern California. Twelve of my fourteen years were in middle school, and for the past two years, I have been a third grade teacher.
My heart is in teaching! I believe in teaching the whole child, not solely teaching academics. Children need to learn how to be good people and how to lead productive lives, and I think teachers have the opportunity to provide an example for students. I have also learned over the course of my career that consistencyand love are three key components of a successful classroom.
In 2007, I became a National Board Certified Teacher.
Bachelor's Degree--San Diego State University Teaching Credential--California State University, Northridge Master's Degree (NBCT)--National University
