I have been teaching for 26 years. I will be starting my 15th year teaching 2nd graders, and truly love this age group and curriculum. I have also taught Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten,1st, 4th, and 5th grade.
I love trying to find ways to reach all of the learners I teach. I want learning to be fun, authentic, and meaningful.
Two-time Teacher of the Year Award recipient
I received my B.A. in Ethnic Studies/Sociology and Multiple Subjects/Bilingual/Cross-Cultural teaching credential from the University of California, Riverside. I have also received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am a proud mom of two phenomenal children. I love to cook, bake, camp, hike, and read!
