I have taught for 22 years in a Title 1 school. I love my job.
I believe in preparing students for their greatest challenges in the simplest and most painless way possible. Kids need to believe that they can do it before they will try to do it.

When I was young, everything was hard for me. I was diagnosed with dyslexia in 2nd grade. I struggled for years to find my way. Fortunately, I got help, and I went on to be successful. But I still carry with me the memories of struggling with reading, writing, and math. That is why I have named my store "Learning Buddy"! My goal is to make materials that give easier practice for harder and more challenging skills so all learners can feel successful. Students who are struggling need clear instruction, and ample opportunities to practice a skill before they feel confident. Don't ALL learners need and deserve that?
I live in Orange County, California with my rescue dog Chepito, and rescue cat Nicki. I have 5 great nieces and 2 great nephews. For fun I swing dance, and sing in my church choir.
