I have been teaching in the Los Altos School district for the last four years. I have taught 1st for each of these years and learned so much. I teach professional development at Resource Area For Teachers (RAFT) and have take many professional developments around reading and writing.
I like ordered chaos in my room.
I attended the University of California San Diego and received my degree in Communications and Political Science. I did not know that I was going to be a teacher when I graduated, but I love it! I went to San Jose State for my credential and have been working for Los Altos School District since graduating. I take professional development often. I have balanced literacy, writers' workshop, and curriculum development experience.
I am a mother of a beautiful boy and a wife to a CPA. I am the creative one while he works the finance and crunches the numbers. I love crafting, Daily Method bar workouts, and anything I can do with and around water. We have wonderful friends that are constantly over at our house. I love reading and have tried to start a young adult book club. I have tried writing a children's book and am excited to work on it through a course that I am going to take. I also write a blog about what is going on in my classroom. www.thefirstgradeplayground.blogspot.com I would love more followers! If you follow me and leave me a message and follow me on TpT, I will send you a $1 item from my store. (I hope I am allowed to do this). I would love it if you would leave feedback too! Thanks
