I have been an elementary teacher for 14 years. I am currently teaching Kindergarten in an urban school which has a large number of English Language Learners. I have also taught 3rd and 2nd grades. In addition, I was a substitute teacher for 2 years. Prior to that, I taught preschool and provided daycare.
I like to make learning fun!
I attended UC Santa Barbara where I received my BA in Developmental Psychology. I then completed some graduate work at Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena. I received my Teaching Credential from Cal State Fullerton.
I have two children, 24 and 22. I love animals and currently have a dog and two cats.
