TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In 2000, I began my career in education. Over the years, I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I have also had the opportunity to be an ESL (English Speakers of other Langages) teacher, a special needs teacher, and an interventionist for FCRR (Florida Center of Reading Research). I have experience in teaching in high poverty schools (both Arizona and Florida) as well as at an "A" school with tremendous parent involvement. Several years ago, my coworkers selected me to represent my former school as teacher of the year. It was an absolute honor! My passion lies in teaching reading and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to pursue and receive my M.Ed in Reading. Currently I am teaching first grade and love it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love working with small groups differentiating instruction. I like incorporating new ideas. If I had my way, I would go back to thematic teaching where all subject areas are integrated.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year for my former school in 2006. Graduated Cum Laude with my Bachelor's Degree. 4.0 GPA for my Master's Degree

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I love school! I was destined to become a teacher. As soon as I graduated from college as a French major, I started teaching Kindergarten with an "emergency" credential. Once I started teaching, I earned 39 units in education (alternative teaching route) to get my elementary teaching certificate and ESL endorsement in Arizona. Several years later, I moved to FL I completed about 39 more units to get my Master's degree in Reading (4.0 GPA).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am certified to teach elementary education and have endorsements in reading, ESOL, and ESE.
