I'm an elementary teacher, currently teaching second grade.
Balanced. I have high expectations, but know that students learn more when they enjoy it, so I make it fun too! I'm an organized planner, but know that teaching is all about adapting and being flexible to change.
Unofficial title of "best teacher ever" by my current students.
Bachelor's degree in Psychology from UCSD
Mother of two remarkable children, wife of one amazing hubby, teacher and friend of many.
