I believe in making learning as authentic and engaging as possible based on the gradual release of responsiblity. I love sharing the joy of reading with children and helping them access the beautiful world of print!
I have received many precious hand-made awards from my students and occasional rounds of applause from my class. That totally counts, right?
BA in Elementary Education (Focus areas: English, Spanish and mathematics) from Western Oregon University. ESL endorsement.
I'm a mom of 2 boys and have had the amazing opportunity to teach at their school and watch them thrive in our dual language program. I love hiking and camping in our beautiful state. My husband is also a teacher, so we are spoiled in the summer!
