I received the Crystal Apple Award from N.B.C. News. The "Excellence in Teaching" Award was given to me by the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Educational Partnership. My Math Team won the first place trophy four times in the Los Angeles Unified School District's Math Tournament. I am most proud of my after school Accelerated Reader Program in which students have read thousands of books each year. In 2000, I became a National Board Certified Teacher by receiving a scaled score of 386 points (teachers needed a scaled score or 275 points to become certified.) I renewed my certification in 2009. I have been a teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District since 1982.
I have the highest expectations for all of my students. I scaffold each skill in the smallest steps so that even my lowest students can understand the concept. At the same time, I always teach above grade level standards to keep my students motivated and challenged.
