Throughout my career I have considered myself a champion for children, advocating for their needs and supporting them through formative years. I began my career as a preschool teacher after receiving a minor in Early Childhood Education. I found passion in watching children learn and grow. Upon receiving my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential in graduate school, I became a public elementary school teacher where I taught all subjects and built caring classroom communities. I have since honed in my skills through community outreach, parenthood, professional development training, and targeted instruction practices and tutoring.
I am credentialed in California and trained specifically in areas of literacy and math development and intervention as well as English Language Development. I am Orton Gillingham trained and consider myself a life-long learner and am always seeking out professional development opportunities, staying abreast of current education research and trends. The art of teaching brings me insurmountable joy.
