I taught for two years at a wonderful school in Utah where I had about 280 eighth grade students a year including a gifted class. Now I teach in New Mexico right along the United States boarder, close to Mexico. Many of my students speak English as a second language to Spanish. I teach about 80 seventh graders and am lucky enough to see them every day.
In my classroom, students discover knowledge as they develop skills through real world contexts. I try to help them feel ownership over their learning and try to create a student-lead environment. As their teacher, I am their coach, mentoring them through this educational journey.
Student Teacher of the Year Award from Brigham Young University for English teaching majors.
I grew up in Las Vegas, NV where I attended public school. I then continued my education at Brigham Young University in Utah. Since then, I have continued learning through receiving my gifted and talented endorsement and working to increase my knowledge of teaching ELL students.
When Pandora opened her box, all the evils of the world escaped, leaving only Hope. We, as teachers, can also leave students with hope when we equip them for "The Real World." I hope you can find a little something in my store to help you leave your students with hope.
