I am in my 8th year as a middle school teacher in San Diego, CA. I teach 8th grade Social Studies, Language Arts, and AVID and serve as the AVID coordinator at our school which is an AVID National Demonstration School. During my first year as a teacher, I earned my Masters in Digital Teaching and Learning and have been empowered by educational technology ever since. A little over two years ago, I became an AVID Staff Developer which has been an incredible networking and learning experience. I have had the opportunity to learn from so many educators at my school, in my district, and with the #powerofaPLN, around the world. I have also had an opportunity to provide many opportunities for professional development and with each new experience as an educator, I am always reminded that I will always be a lifelong learner.
I like to give structure and scaffolds and promote student voice, choice, and ownership of learning. I promote collaborative learning structures and instructional best practices such as WICOR strategies as well as the 4 C's. I love to blend online and offline learning to create rich learning experiences.
