TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught 1st grade, 5th grade, and 4th grade in public, charter, and private school settings. I have been trained in GATE education and incorporate the models of teaching into my everyday practice.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Learning MUST be fun! I truly believe that students must love school or they won't learn. My teaching is very center based and project based. I believe that students need routine and structure while at the same time having choice.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I went to UC Davis where I graduated with a B.S. in Human Development and a minor in Education. I also got my teaching credential and M.A. in Education. Go Aggies!
