I love primary elementary! I have taught kinder, 2nd, 3rd and a 2/3 split! I found my niche in second grade and I love spending time with my little friends! My kiddos are mostly ELL learners and I work in a beautiful Title 1 charter school in Southern California.
I use a LOT of Thinking Maps! My room runs on a workshop model - which is pretty imperative when you have the range of EL level and reading level as I do. I try to make learning fun and rigorous!
Yet to be added
I have a multiple subject credential and a single subject credential in English from California State University Northridge, a masters from USC, GATE certification from California State University Fullerton and I am a Thinking Maps trainer.
