I have been teaching for 21 years in Title I schools. I have taught general education/SPED collaboration classes, first, third, fourth, and PreK.
Community building drives the tone of the classroom. I try to provide a space centered with respect, care, and consistency. I don't always get it right, but my students and I muddle through together to create a place where we can come together happily each day.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year three times.
I have a B.S. in Psychology and a Masters in Teaching.
I am mom to three boys ages 7, 14, and 15.
