This is my 17th year teaching in the Del Mar Union School District. Gosh that sounds like a long time, but I feel like I just started! You mean I'm not that cute young new teacher who always has a pep in her step and wears a 'yes' smile? Are those my wrinkles...no way!
Secretly still just a kid...does that qualify?
As a first grade teacher who has tirelessly embraced the Common Core, is a full-time working mom, and still has a smile on her face...now that deserves honors and awards...right? Seriously, you name it, I probably got it! But that's not what makes a great teacher...
This little mermaid graduated from UC San Diego with a BA in Visual and Performing Arts; Art History. I received my California teaching credential and CLAD certificate from Cal State University San Marcos. I am in my third year of CGI (cognitively guided instruction) and I am currently a Common Core Lead Math teacher in my school district. I've had many, many, many wonderful professional learning opportunities...too many to count!!!
My family and I are lifelong locals who live by the beach and enjoy surfing beautiful coastlines, traveling to far off places, practicing yoga, backpacking in the mountains and exploring new things together. Life is RAD!!!
