I have been teaching 20 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades. I have been at 6th for 14 years now. I'm a huge history buff and love language, travel, studying world religions, philosophy, literature. History and Reading are my two favorite subjects to teach.
I'm all about a good lesson that includes a ton of engagement. I'm a big Kagan fan. I think a good lesson should be very visual, technology must be involved somehow, and hands-on solid cooperative learning is the only way to fly!
Yet to be added
I have a BA in Liberal Studies, BCLAD bilingual credential, 20 years in the classroom.
I'm married with 3 kids ranging from fourth grade to seventh grade. Just celebrated 18 years of marriage. Love to travel (just got back from Greece), Giants baseball fan, guitarist, animal-lover!
