I have been teaching middle school for 16 years. I taught 6th grade for 12 years and I am now in my 4th year of 8th grade. I have a BA in History and my Master's in Reading.
I am not the sit down be quiet, no noise kind of teacher. I do like order but I like collaboration, group work, socratic seminars, debates, etc.
Teacher of the year for my school site District Teacher of the Year
I attended community college (RCC, MCC, and Palomar) for my first 2 years of school. I then transferred to CSUSM where I earned a BA in History, a BA in Liberal Studies, and then my teaching credential. I earned my Master's in Reading from Grand Canyon University.
I am a busy mom, wife, and teacher. I have a 6 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. I commute with them to work everyday (45 minutes one way). I am a volleyball and soccer mom. I love teaching history! I am ecstatic that this year I am only teaching history!
