I have been teaching for 16 years in the primary grades. I also taught English as a Second Language in Seoul, South Korea for 10 months.
I prefer a very hands-on and kinesthetic, cooperative group environment; in which students are actively engaged in the learning process.
I recieved the Press Enterprise "Silver Apple Award" in 2005 and the District Teacher of the Year Award in 2009-2010.
I have a multiple subject teaching credential and a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I am a mother of two daughters; one 9 and the other 6 years old.
