It has been over eleven years since I began my teaching career. The majority of these years, I've been working with bilingual students.
Stepping into my room, you will see a learner centered classroom. I provide my kids with visuals and hands-on activities in order to help keep them engaged. I run a tight ship, when it comes to classroom management. I believe that most of us excel when we know what is expected of us and my expectations are high.
I have had the honor of leading my grade level team, a group of 13 teachers, for two years.
I received my Bachelor's Degree of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2006. I also have a Master's Degree in School Administration, which I received in 2013, but at the moment, have not put it to use since I am not ready to leave my little kingdom (classroom).
I am a mother to a beautiful teen girl and have been married for 16 years.
