I am a retired school teacher. I have worked in K-2 regular, bilingual and dual language classrooms. I also taught K-6 ESL in a pull-out program and have helped train parents and teachers. I taught for 22 years in Boise, Idaho. I have also taught in 3 different school districts in Texas.
I always enjoyed teaching and felt that it was important to make learning fun for my students. At the same time, I believe in rigor and meeting the standards. My approach is hands-on, with many center activities.
