I taught third and fourth grade for 8 years in Centrailia and Tustin Unified School Districts. More recently I am a mother of two amazing scholars, ages 15 and 13. I graduated with my mulitsubject teaching credential from UCI with a CLAD emphasis in 1996. I recieved my Masters of Science in Education: Reading Specialist from California State University Fullerton in 2002. I stayed home to raise our children and would love to share my expertise in reading education.

Reading with Rolo, our loveable labradoodle is somthing I have shared with the OC Rescue mission for the past year. Rolo and I are a registered therapy dog team with Pet Partners and we come with liability insurance. I am ready to enter back into my profession but I would rather not leave Rolo behind. I believe my experience and talent will make a difference in the life of your child.

I graduated from Cal State Long Beach Cum Laude in 1994. More recently I regularly read my children's essays and know what it takes to get an A in English in today's high school courses.

I learned Spanish as a second language as a native Californian. This challenge gives me perspective and a love for learning a language later in life. Many native speakers are amazed by my fluency as I have used Spanish extensively for travel and study. In college I took courses in comparing and contrasting English and Spanish and am familiar with the articulation points that improve pronounciation in non native speakers.

We would love to meet you at your local public library to pick out books if reading materials are desired. I can meet you in your home as well if that is prefered. Please email or text me to learn more and schedule lessons.
