It is hard to believe that I have been teaching for 22 years. I started my teaching career in fourth grade. Stayed there for five years and then had the opportunity to move to third, where I taught for sixteen years. Last year, I moved back to fourth grade.
I try as much as possible to combine curriculum, writing, and artwork. It is how I really enjoy teaching.
I was selected as a teacher of the month in our district (Conejo Valley Unified School District), nominated for the Disney Teacher Award, as well as the Amgen Teaching Award.
I received my undergraduate degree in Human Growth and Development and Psychology from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. (Cal Poly SLO) and then earned my teaching credential from Cal Poly as well.
I am so excited to be a part of the Teachers Pay Teachers community! I have purchased many items from other teachers and used them in my classroom, and I hope I can help teachers as well with the items that I have used, created, and loved in my own classroom. I am a true believer in working smarter not harder. :)
