I've taught a total of 10 years in both the Public and Charter school setting. 6 years in 5th grade, 2 years in 4th grade and 1 year as a Reading Interventionist and one year as a Math Interventionist for grades 1-5. I'm currently a 5th grade teacher.
I believe in hands on approaches to teaching. I think kids need to be active participants in their learning and vested in their classroom and teacher.
Yet to be added
Graduated with a BS in Elementary Education and a MEd in Literacy Studies both from the University of Nevada, Reno.
I'm bilingual in English and Spanish, having lived for a year in high school in Mexico. My charter school experience comes from a dual language school in which I taught all curriculum in both languages. I continue to use my Spanish daily at my current school to communicate with parents and students new to the country.
