I followed my passion for working with young children by earning my Masters in Science (EI/ECSE) and teaching license from the University of Oregon. This pivotal experience opened the door for an amazing and rewarding career in several top performing, award winning school districts. I have devoted myself to helping early childhood elementary students realize their full potential. I have successfully taught in the Palm Springs Unified School District, San Juan Capistrano Unified School District and most recently Eanes Independent school district in Austin, Texas.
I am devoted to empowering parents to be advocates for their children, creating inclusive school environments and building a school community that values all learners. I believe that aspiring to be an educator is the ultimate profession and feel very honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with future teachers.
As a college instructor and supervisor for student teachers, I am honored to share my passion and years of wisdom in the field. I have the chance to be in many classrooms each week and intend for this blog to share some if the highlights I see in the field and current trends in the field of education.
With gratitude and respect,
