This is my ninth year teaching. I taught one year of 3rd grade, 8 years in 4th grade, and this is my first year in 1st grade. I also student-taught 1st grade in Santa Ana and 6th grade (self-contained class) in Newport Beach.
I have extremely high expectations for myself and my students. I am constantly reworking, rethinking, and reformatting homework, assessments, activities, and projects. I run my class like a well-oiled machine because it allows greater freedom to teach when kids know what they should be doing. I address the different learning styles of my students by providing them opportunities to learn in the way that suits them best.
