ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a former family law attorney with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a middle school endorsement in Spanish. After practicing law for 10 years I decided to return to my passion: teaching. Unfortunately, 3 back surgeries since June 2012 have left me unable to work right now, so I have decided to get my teaching fix and share all of my favorite educational discoveries in one place, so teachers and parents can enjoy them! If there is ever anything you would like to see added, please do not hesitate to message me!
