Currently, I am an ELD K-5 teacher. Previously, I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th in a regular ed classroom! :)
I am passionate about educational trends, while keeping true to what works best for my current students. I believe in them wholeheartedly and expect only the best out of each of them on the DAILY!
~~~~~~~~2014/2015 Site Teacher of the Year~~~~~~~~~~~
Fun fact about my education history...I teach at my elementary school! I came in as a monolingual 3rd grader and left as a fully English proficient 5th grader!! :) I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Master of Arts in Language, Reading and Culture and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership. All degrees from the University of Arizona--- GO WILDCATS!! I also have a couple endorsements/cert...Reading Specialist and my Principal Certification!
Teaching was not my childhood dream, it just became my "adulthood" reality! :) I absolutely LOVE what I do and am glad my journey took me other places before I found home...teaching!! :)
