HI, I'm Mandy. I have been a teacher for 18 years now and have loved every single minute of it. I feel honored and blessed to be at the school I am at and also staying home part-time.
Being a teacher in the 21st century is such an amazing time! STEM, 1 to 1, Growth Mindset, Common Core, and so many other amazing teaching tools are out there. I love to take advantage of everything new to not only keep myself engaged but more importantly the kiddos!!!!!
Yet to be added
I went to the University of San Diego many years ago and majored in Political Science. I love politics and history. I wanted to go into government to make a difference but found myself with a job opportunity in teaching little ones and realized in the class is where I can make a difference in kiddos lives. I have a Master's degree in elementary education and am in the middle of finishing a certificate program in the area of Gifted and Talented in ESL students. Very fascinating area!
I was born and raised in Southern California and love spending time at the beach, mountains, and everywhere in between.
