Degrees and Certifications:
I have a baccalaureate degree in liberal studies Masters degree in teacher leadership with an emphasis in the National Boards Several certificates in teaching English as a second language and G.A.T.E. I have earned over 90 college units in professional development too.
I've been teaching since 1993. I began my journey in the Los Angeles Unified School District and I have taught grade levels first thru fifth grades including class combinations of first and second, third and fourth, and fourth and fifth grades too. I truly love teaching children and it is my passion! There is no greater calling then being a teacher, and I am truly humbled and blessed to teach children everyday. I'm so thankful for this enormous blessing.
It's a great life being surrounded by children throughout the year. I can't think of anything better then being an educator!
This a great site on organization tips for at home and at work too.
