TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught 1st-7th grades and have been a Reading Intervention Specialist in my 15 years of teaching. I found that the grade level doesn't matter as much as the opportunities I have to mentor kids to find growth and success in their own lives.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a fan of using a variety of teaching styles to meet the diverse needs of my students. I often observe as I'm teaching and switch the delivery method if I see the current instructional strategy isn't working. I like kinesthetic memorization techniques (pairing movement to information) as well as story-telling to help explain a concept. Allowing students to investigate concepts on their own, as well as, come up with their own projects to explain their learning are also some of my favorite methods.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Feather River Teacher of the Year 2012

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have an AA from Sierra College in Liberal Arts. I have a BA from Sacramento State University in Psychology with a minor of Criminal Justice. (More helpful than you might think!) I got my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Sacramento State University, as well. I have been trained in Love & Logic, Nurtured Heart, and Peer Coaching, and I was a BTSA Support Provider for many years.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a wife, mother, teacher, writer, and Crossfitter. Teaching has been the true calling of my life, and I am so glad I had the support of a great BTSA Mentor to help me on my way! After all these years, I still love teaching, and I'm also excited to start writing lessons for TpT!
