Welcome to Our Class
I am honored to be able to share my passion and craft for teaching with this dynamic community, once again. I consider myself a life-long learner and have been blessed with many incredible opportunities along the way. This is my 21st year of teaching and I have two teaching licenses- one in elementary education and the other in special education. I have a National Board Certification in Literacy-Reading/Language Arts: Early-Middle Childhood, a TESOL endorsement, and a dyslexia teacher certification. I completed all of the coursework for the UNM Educational Diagnostician program and am working on finishing up my MS in Education this school year.
I am a loving teacher whose classroom management skills allow me to provide the structure and routines needed for student success and growth. I am able to meet the needs of all learners easily, relying on my extensive experience to provide differentiated instruction/student response. I am passionate about offering real-world applications to students and believe in providing ample opportunities for project-based activities and collaborative learning groups. I work closely with parents and colleagues to ensure the success of all students and promote positive feelings toward school.
