This is my 18th year as a teacher. Most of my career has been in early education. I have a background in Reading Recovery.
I love to teach with a hands on approach, however, worksheets are a necessity sometimes especially for assessments. Since the state standardized tests are paper and pencil based I have to use worksheets and "bubble" tests.
I graduated with honors when I received my masters in elementary education at the University of Phoenix. I've been trained in Reading Recovery and have been using the techniques for many years.
I attended the University of Arizona for my bachelors in education with a minor in science. I attended the University of Phoenix for my masters in Education. I completed the course of study for Reading Recovery and have been using the strategies taught diligently.
I'm a native of Tucson, AZ. I am privy to the rich cultural, and horticultural environment. If you need a unit on the Sonora Desert I'm your girl. Contact me and I'll pull a unit together. I'm a proud mother of four all of whom graduated from the Tucson Unified School District public schools. All four have gone on to receive a higher education.
