20 Years of teaching experience in grades PreK-8th. Most of my teaching experience is in grades K-3.
Hands-on Minds-on Standards Based
The best teaching moments for me are times when a student who has been struggling with something finally reaches that A-Ha moment and you can see the pride and confidence in their faces!
I graduated from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) I have an ESL Endorsement, a Reading Endorsement, and an Early Childhood Endorsement.
I am currently teaching 3rd grade again after spending the past 3 years teaching Kindergarten!
