Currently I am teaching STEM at all of the elementary schools in a district in San Diego. My love of STEM in the classroom began when I was a first grade teacher. When I'm not teaching or creating resources my classroom, I am helping teachers with implementing Ed-Tech in my district. I also blog at www.lovelearningstem.com and create standards-based, engaging, and inclusive resources with my English Language Learning students in mind.
I believe in pursuing equity in my classrooms, and not leaving any student group behind. I believe that all of my students can achieve and and that every single one of them has a strong desire to learn and be successful. With this mindset, I build relationships with my students and teach hands-on, quality lessons to be as effective as I am with my time. I do not like implementing fluff, because quite honestly, my students and I don't have the time for that. I try to create resources for myself that make the most of the instructional time that I have with them.

When I'm not teaching, creating TPT resources, or Youtube Videos, I am enjoying Sunny San Diego with my two daughters and husband or serving with my church.
