I have been teaching for 11 years in grades 1, 2, 3; multiage educations (1st/2nd); bilingual education (Spanish and English), and this year will teach ESOL to K, 3, and 5. I love to create new things and watch the students have fun. I love to be inspired with new ideas, new teaching strategies, and watching other amazing teachers around me! Teaching is my creative outlet!
