I have been teaching for 18 years. In that time, I have taught 6th grade ELA, Math, and Social Studies and 7th/8th grade mathematics. I am currently teaching at a 2nd grade level and loving it!
I am a teacher who uses a lot of hands-on activities whenever I can to enrich my lessons. I like the kids to cut and paste, move and manipulate, research and create projects. I find the worksheets and activities with the simplest designs seem to work well for my students; keeping them from being distracted from too much busy-ness on the page.
I received a Teacher-of-the-Year award at the school I taught in California back in 2005.
Attended California State University, Bakersfield. Graduated with a BA in Liberal Studies with a minor in Mathematics.
