I taught 4th grade, 1st grade, 3rd grade and special education. I am currently teaching a 5th grade gifted classroom.
I like to teach using a number of active and collaborative teaching strategies. I like to assign projects and see students working together and teach each other. I like to talk but I'd much rather have my students do the "work" and I take the role of facilitator.
Golden Apple Teacher Award
I attended Biola University and received both of my Clear Teaching Credentials from Los Angeles Unified School District Intern Program. I have a Clear Multiple Subject Credential and a Clear Mild to Moderate Special Education Credential.
I live in sunny California with my hubby and three children.
