Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to our classroom. For those of you who don’t yet know me, I have been teaching since 1996. I was at Oak Park Music Conservatory, Gage Elementary School, Carson Elementary School, an Educational Technology Resource Teacher for the SDUSD, an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher at the district level for SDUSD, and most recently I’m a Project Specialist Educational Technology at the San Diego County Office of Education. But my heart is always in the classroom with students.
My certifications are as follows:
- BA in Psychology from Revelle College at UCSD
- Minor in Visual Arts & a Minor in Teacher’s Education
- Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from SDSU
- Master’s Degree in Educational Technology from SDSU
- Math Specialist Certification, SDUSD/SDSU
- GATE Certification SDUSD/SDSU
- Nurturing Scholars Certification SDUSD
- LEC Blended and Online Certification, iNACOL
- PASC Administrator’s Certificate through the San Diego County Office of Education.
I look forward to using all this knowledge to help meet the needs of all my students this year.
It’s always wonderful to start off another great school year! The beginning of the year is always a time for learning our classroom routines, reviewing and strengthening what was learned last year, and building a strong classroom culture that unlocks the genius in EVERY child in our room and maximizes growth in every interaction. It’s a time for academic growth and personal development. I look forward to working with you all as we begin a relentless focus on learning and achieving together.
Parents and guardians are always welcome in my classroom and at our school. If you would like to volunteer for the school, please let the office or me know. I can put you in contact with people who will be happy to assist you in signing up to help in any manner with which you feel comfortable. Of course, help in our classroom is always welcomed at just about any time!
