TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 13th year of teaching! I taught Spanish my first year, 10 years of 2nd, 1 year of 3rd, and now currently in 5th! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm all about making lessons more relevant to the students. I love to expose students to a wide range of literature along with different ways to problem solve and use their skills every day. I am always looking for the best way to reach my kids. Thinking outside the box is what I do! :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2013 Teacher of the Year

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Minor in Spanish Master's Degree in Elementary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love exposing my students to all the possibilities there are out there for them! Working in a very high poverty school, my students don't always have the same experiences as I did when I was that age. This challenges and excites me to be able to share experiences with them. It motivates me to be the best teacher I can be for them!! :)
