This will be my sixth year teaching! I have taught First grade for three years and Second Grade for one. I was also a Reading Intervention Specialist for one year.
I have a very hands-on appraoch to teaching. I believe in giving student's time to collaborate and work their way through problems. I love creating projects for students to work together with. I use technology in the classroom on a daily basis and am a strong believer in having the studnets help lead the learning!
I grew up with a mom as an educator and followed in her footsteps. After completing two years of community college I headed to University of California, San Diego. After graduating I headed to University of San Diego for both my teaching Credential and Masters of Education. I look forward to heading back to school next year to achieve my Administrative Credential, one step closer to my Doctorate!
Not only do I love to teach I love spending time with my family. I am lucky to have an amazing husband(J.T.) and an awesome little boy(Graydon). We have our "First" baby, Charlie the dog and now our three new additions, the chicks.
