10 years in kindergarten, including 5 years teaching in a full-day program. 5 years teaching 4th grade.
I enjoy creating exciting learning opportunities within my classroom, using the standards as a guide, but also incorporating differentiation icons and some of my favorite activities from other grades I have taught (making them accessible and relevant to kindergarten). When writing my own units, I prefer simple, straight-forward activities. I love color and graphics, but in my own lessons, I keep it simple.
SCV Teacher of the Year
After graduating with a degree in film and television, I found that what I really love to do is teach. So, back to college I went and have been happily teaching primary students ever since.
In addition to teaching, I love being the Mom-Taxi to my two wonderful daughters (who are also my original test subjects when it comes to my lessons).
