TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught elementary school for ten years in two districts with high English Learner populations. I have been team lead at three different schools and most recently was in the common core cohort for my district, receiving two years of intensive training to help prepare my school for the coming change.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Let the students do the bulk of the work, the book "Never Work Harder Than Your Students" is my mantra! I strongly believe in a classroom based on mutual respect, and enforcing routines and a positive learning atmosphere early on (especially in the area of group work and leadership) in order to lead to the students being enthusiastic about their work, confident in the ability to try new things and make mistakes, and plan and follow through with ideas.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated with a Speech Communications Degree with emphasis on Education from Pepperdine University, then went on to get my multiple subject credential from Cal State University San Marcos. I have also taken courses through UCLA and University San Diego.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I recently decided to stay at home with my new baby for the year and am trying my hand at Teachers Pay Teachers to keep the intellectual and professional juices flowing!
