Hello everyone! After college, I moved to NYC because I wanted to work in a high need area and enjoy an adventure for only one year...8 years later I moved back to Southern California where I am originally from. Those years in Brooklyn and East Harlem teaching 2nd-5th grade taught be so much about doing whatever I needed to do to meet the needs of all of my students. Back in CA, I got married and subbed for one year while I looked for a job in the tough market. I landed a 6th grade math position within the district I grew up in and love being there today!
I am all in! I enjoy a collaborative approach where I do, we do, they do. I love stations/centers (yes, even in upper elementary) because I believe every student needs one on one attention at least a few times a week. ***I teach 6th grade math and writing. We departmentalize our 4th-6th grades and have unique schedules and alternatives within an elementary school campus.
