I have been teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies for 10 years now. Over the years, I have spent a great deal of time creating my own unique lessons, worksheets, graphic organizers, etc. to better meet the needs of my students and supplement the information found in the text book.
I believe that the text book is just a starting point for teachers. I create and design other supplemental activities to target certain standards, increase knowledge, highlight main ideas, etc. I am a very visual learner myself, so the materials that I create are very easy on the eyes and spacially organized.

I received my BA from Pepperdine University and then went to CSU, Fresno to obtain a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. In 2010, I went back to school and go a Masters Degree in Counseling from California Lutheran University.
Middle School is truly my passion, I know not everyone can say that. I am very dedicated to my students and my career. Teaching is a gift that I am able to share with my colleagues and students. I have had many mentor teachers and collaborated with some incredible eduators over the years, so if I am able to help another teacher out in anyway by sharing my materials, I would be happy.
