I’ve taught first grade for seven years and subbed prior to teaching full-time. I currently teach in sunny Southern California at a charter school as the STEM Teacher. I absolutely love teaching! I love the kids, the challenges, the triumphs, and the learning for both the students and teachers. I also enjoy mentoring new teachers and sharing strategies, classroom management tips and learning from them. I strongly believe that teaching includes engaging lesson planning and prep work. With TPT, I am able to create and share resources that have proven to be successful with my students. When creating prep work, I focus on the greater concepts that incorporate multiple disciplines and learning targets. Like many teachers, I have an eye for detail and pay attention to presentation, which is why you will see high quality, carefully-developed resources on my page. I love sharing and developing content, so please feel free to drop a comment or add ratings as I appreciate the feedback. Thank you for visiting my page, and please follow my store! Happy teaching!
My teaching is composed of creating a warm, supportive environment while holding my students accountable for their learning. I set clear expectations and use positive reinforcements with my students.
My proudest moments teaching are watching my students learn and grow.
Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies. Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction.
I enjoy cooking on my free time and I love testing new recipes!
