I have been teaching for over 2 decades. :)
A no-nonsense approach to teaching with an endless amount of love and compassion thrown in!
I have been nominated for Teacher of the Year. In addition, I was selected for the 10th Edition of Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
I received my BA in Liberal Studies from California State University and my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from University of California, Davis. I also hold a supplementary authorization to teach English Language Arts for grades 6-9.
Proud mom to 3 wonderful and awesome sons. I love traveling and I will admit to having an ongoing love affair with the beach...it's really not a big secret, though. :) **Logo/Button, Top Store Banner & Side Banner all created by Laine Sutherland of A Little Peace of Africa. ***Special Shout-Out to Sculpt Designs and Red Pepper for the beautiful background papers***
