I have been teaching for ten years. I began my career at a Waldorf-inspired school as a support teacher for a first grade class, then moved with them to second grade. I then taught first grade for five years at a title one charter school, followed by one year in fifth grade at the same school. I am currently teaching second grade at a magnet school for math, art, science, and technology (MAST).
I love telling stories to the kids. I think they learn best when they hear a story first.
I was nominated for 2015 Teacher of the Year.
B.A. from SSU, Teaching Credential from Chapman University
I enjoy singing, laughing, telling stories and jokes, playing music with my family, letterboxing, writing, and traveling.
