I have taught in both private and public schools (1st-5th grades) for the last 12 years! No matter where I am, my second home is my classroom. I am currently teach 5th grade in a title 1 school with mostly language learners. This demographic is challenging and rewarding at the same time. I can't imagine doing anything else.
I like to get my students engaged in meaningful discussions and in lots of hands-on projects and activities. I like for them to keep interactive journals and reflect on their thinking a lot. My favorite subjects to teach are reading and science.
I've been awarded many grants and I count those as awards! :)
Bachelors- Liberal Studies Credential- Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Masters- Curriculum & Instruction
I am an avid world traveler (how can we not be when we get the summers off!?) and love photography.
