TEACHING EXPERIENCE

- Inner city Los Angeles (third grade)
- Suburban Los Angeles (second and third grade)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have been told that I am organic in my teaching, meaning that I teach in a natural way as opposed to by the books.
I have high expectations for my students and work hard to teach them to love learning.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Hi everyone! My name is Toluca and I am a mother to two sweet baby girls, a wife to a wonderful husband, and a teacher of five years.

I teach in Los Angeles and consider myself to have a wide range of experience. I've taught in both high-poverty and suburban areas of LA. I love to grow and learn and adapt my teaching based on new research.

Creating resources for other teachers makes me happy. I hope my products inspire and motivate you while making your busy teaching lives a little bit easier. Feel free to get in touch at markersandminions.com!
