I have been teaching for 15 years. I have taught 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I have been teaching kindergarten for the last ten years. My heart and soul belong to kindergarten. I love every minute of it. Those little people have a way of bringing out the best in me. I teach in a low income area with a high population of English Language Learners.
I use lots of hands on learning as well as group activities. I also use lots of music, stories, and movement to help my students remember things. I am forever and always trying to find ways to make learning fun and exciting for my kids, so nothing ever stays the same.
Yet to be added
I have a B.A. in Liberal Studies, a CA teaching credential, and a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction. I have attended many conferences and inservices on English Language Learners, Learning Communities, as well as Kindergarten conferences. I was part of our district Rigorous Curriculum Design committee when we implemented Common Core Standards.
I am a wife and a mom. I have been married for 26 years and have 23 year old triplets.
