My name is Dory and I'm a full time elementary school teacher and a mom. I specialize in bringing learning to life using fun songs, games, technology, and other engaging activities. I have been a teacher for 15 years in the public, private, and home school arena. I began my career at Horizon Christian Elementary School teaching fourth grade. From there I went to Cajon Valley Union School District, where I currently teach fourth grade. I have taught Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, and can tailor my program to meet the needs of any age. While teaching in the pubic schools, I spent a year as a home school facilitator working with parents to create long range plans and follow through on work completion. As you can see, I am passionately committed to learning and kids. I hold a BA from Point Loma Nazarene University as well as a Masters in Cross Cultural Education from National University. I maintain a multiple subject and CLAD credential.
Using a variety of methods, I diagnose gaps in a students learning and build up those skills while practicing concepts they have learned. Enrichment is also available where I can expose students to concepts they will be taught in the upcoming grade.
