Bio

Aloha! I have been a teacher for nearly 17 years. I began the first half of my career working in bilingual classrooms (2nd and 3rd grade) here in Colorado and the other half in Hawaii working in ELL inclusion classrooms (4th grade). I also served as an ELL resource teacher for two years and worked with grades K-5. Although it seems that my experience revolves around language, I truly enjoy teaching math.

Aloha! I have been a teacher for nearly 17 years. I began the first half of my career working in bilingual classrooms (2nd and 3rd grade) here in Colorado and the other half in Hawaii working in ELL inclusion classrooms (4th grade). I also served as an ELL resource teacher for two years and worked with grades K-5. Although it seems that my experience revolves around language, I truly enjoy teaching math.
My tutoring experiences were, however focused on reading intervention. I worked for Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes and tutored students that needed help with decoding. I also tutored students who needed help with reading comprehension. During my time in Hawaii, I was able to write a grant and received money to offer summer school for our ELL students. It was a four week program that focused on decoding and reading comprehension. I have also tutored one student who needed help improving his grades in his high school Spanish class. Finally, I have tutored students with various mathematical topics.
I enjoy teaching because it allows me to be a part of students’ long term goals and progress. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me an opportunity to focus on and work with one student or a small group of students and be able to offer them the attention and support they need.

Common Core

I have been teaching to the Common Core State Standards in Colorado and Hawaii for the majority of my career. I have taken part in implementing the CCSS as it was being first introduced to a school, primarily focusing on English Language Arts and then focusing on Math. I have incorporated student-friendly language in the classroom as a part of my content and language objectives for the day. I have used a variety of resources, including curriculum maps to teach the CCSS.
