TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a classroom teacher for more than 25 years. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and substituted in 2nd. Teaching is a fabulous adventure! Also, I have been a workshop presenter at various conferences up and down the state of California.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching should be meaningful, fun and student centered, with lots of hands on learning and, whenever possible, integrating curriculum. Music is an essential component to my classroom. We laugh, sing, and dance to the rhythm of learning.
