I have been enjoying my career as a teacher for 15 years. I have also been a mentor teacher and literacy coach over the years. I enjoy learning from others and sharing ideas.
I love to teaching in a way that encourages children to grow and learn personal independence. My classroom is rarely quiet and it is always exciting! I am structured, yet flexible. Everyday is a new adventure full of possibilities to be GREAT!
Awards are daily! Smiles, hugs and my personal favorite "love notes"! According to my Firsties, I am the BEST teacher they have every had!
A good teacher never stops learning! I remember hearing that a long time ago, and I have taken it to heart. I have a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies (with a minor in Human Development), a Administrative Services Credential, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, an Administrative Services Credential, as well as a, Masters in Educational Leadership. Most importantly I have learned from my fellow colleagues near and far!
I am a teacher, mother, runner...in no particular order!
