Bio

I am a happy educator in a large San Diego school district. I say "educator" because I have served in many roles in the broad field of education, including reading specialist, school and district resource teacher, teacher coach and mentor, administrator, and staff development coordinator. In my 20 years of experience in various educational roles, I've had many opportunities to work on initiatives with other teachers and schools across the county to improve student progress towards the Common...

I am a happy educator in a large San Diego school district. I say "educator" because I have served in many roles in the broad field of education, including reading specialist, school and district resource teacher, teacher coach and mentor, administrator, and staff development coordinator. In my 20 years of experience in various educational roles, I've had many opportunities to work on initiatives with other teachers and schools across the county to improve student progress towards the Common Core Standards. I am currently a first grade teacher, and of all the positions I've held, working directly with children in the classroom is the most rewarding role in my experience.

I have a B.A. degree in Spanish from San Diego State University and spent a year in a Spanish immersion program in Morelia, Mexico. I returned a year later, before beginning my master's degree, to teach English to native Spanish speakers (children and adults). I hold a CA Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a CA Clear Administrative Services Credential. I also hold a Certificate in Reading Recovery, a yearlong graduate-level training course in the theory and practice of early literacy instruction tailored to students' strengths and needs. "Reading Recovery" is a registered trademark of the Marie Clay Trust in New Zealand and The Ohio State University in the U.S.

In all of my roles as an educator, my daily attitude and interactions with students have lasting effects on their self-confidence, curiosity, and desire to learn. I take a team approach in my work and aim to learn about each student in a casual, yet professional manner. When parents, teachers, and tutors communicate and are on the same page, amazing things can happen! Famous educator, educational theorist, and author, Haim Ginott, once said, "While parents possess the original key to their offspring's experience, teachers have a spare key. They, too, can open or close the minds and hearts of children.”

In my 20 years of experience in various educational roles, I've had many opportunities to work on initiatives with other teachers and administrators across the county to improve student progress towards the Common Core Standards. I have a solid understanding of and have trained teachers in a balanced approach to literacy and effective instruction of the Common Core Anchor Standards in ELA/literacy. I have teaching and training experience with the Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Standards for Mathematical Content. Students' skills and conceptual understanding is an overlapping progression, with certain skills taught across grade levels. I have coached others in this area and in my own planning, I present authentic, real-life problems to students that open up discussion and and the ability to solve and understand problems in many ways.
