I have been in my own classroom for the past 3 years. Before that, I taught for one year in a private school as a teachers assistant.
I am all about learning and having fun. The less lecturing I can do and the more hands-on learning my kids can do the better! I love working with 4th and 5th grade students because I feel like I really connect with them.
I am extremely involved in my school and love doing what I can to make it an enjoyable place for students, staff, parents and myself. I have even the school mascot for the past 2 years!!!
While I was working 2 jobs I went to a Junior College in Southern California. After finishing 3 years at a JC, I went to Cal State Fullerton where I got my BA in Liberal Studies...while working three jobs at the same time. Phew!
I am a newly married woman living on a boat and loving life. Teaching and growing learners is my life's calling! Ever since my 3rd grade teacher showed me how awful learning could be, I decided I wanted to be a teacher and make learning fun...the way it should be!
