Degrees and Certifications:
I have been a teacher for eight years: six in the West Contra Costa Unified. During this time I have taught a range of grades from second through sixth. I enjoy meeting students where they are developmentally, academically and emotionally.
My own academic background is varied, too. I hold two teaching credentials; One is for Multiple Subjects from Cal State TEACH, the other is for Single Subject in English from Saint Mary's. Additionally, I have training in technical writing, publishing, and graphic design.
Art and animals are what you can call my passions. I bring them into my classrooms whenever and however I can.
I live with my family on the back side of the Berkeley hills. This includes my husband, two teenage daughters, a dog and two cats.
