TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I recently retired from the Irvine Unified School District where I taught for over 36 years. I loved the creative aspect of teaching and making learning fun. During my years in Irvine, I taught at several schools, helping to open many new schools and developing a camaraderie with staff members. I also spent many years as a mentor for the school district, working with new teachers, developing curriculum tied to state standards, and providing inservice training to school district educators. I miss the students, staff, and parents. I love volunteering in several classrooms each month. I don't think I will ever stop working with children and getting my "kid fix!"

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love the creative outlet that teaching provides. I enjoy working with colleagues to make learning fun as well as successful for my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

While teaching at the finest school district in our state, I was honored by being named IUSD's Elementary Teacher of the Year.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Fresno State University with a major in Geography and obtained my teaching credential for grades K-8. I earned a Masters in curriculum and instruction from USIU.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I recently retired but regularly volunteer in many classrooms. I use many of my TPT products with the students to make sure they are quality ideas that are easy to use, successful in conveying the objective, and fun for students.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
