I've been teaching elementary for over 17 years in a bilingual setting. And during this time, I've also had the privilege of working with and training new teachers. I love developing new curriculum and enhancing it to make it more fun!
I'm a very hands on teacher. I don't just tell them, I demonstrate and inspire!
I took part in achieving the coveted California Distinguished School award along with the CABE Seal of Excellence, all in the same year!
Masters in Education with an emphasis in Reading
I hope you enjoy the many units I've created throughout my career. I know I've loved every moment creating them!
