I have taught at a small rural school in Northern California for the past 5 years. I taught self contained 6th grade, in an elementary setting, for three years. Last year I had a 3rd/4th grade combination class, and this year I was lucky enough to roll up with my 3rd graders and teach a straight 4th grade.
I am an inquiry-based and activity-based teacher. My class is high energy and driven to succeed. We are completely standards-based in 1st and 4th grade.
Contributing member of CalStateTEACH Apple Distinguished Program.
I possess a BA from the University of California, Berkeley in the field of medieval history, focusing on the development and centralization of the Catholic Church as a political entity.
