Instructor Biography

Ive had the privilege to teach children for over 25 years in a variety of settings. I have a B.A. in early childhood education and a clear professional multiple subjects teaching credential. I’ve taught preschool through second grade most of my career. This year I expanded my experience to include teaching Creative Writing to 5-8 graders. I have enjoyed working with this age very much!

I believe children learn best in a safe and fun environment where they are able to test their ideas and ask lots of questions. Young children enjoy lots of hands-on experiences and I try to always offer opportunities to learn in a variety of modalities. Teaching is more than a career to me and I am passionate about seeing kids enjoy learning!

In recent years, I served as a early literacy coach for San Juan Unified school district. It was fun giving workshops to teachers and parents that support children becoming successful readers. Last year I published my second children’s book, Discover the Promise. My first children’s book, Wild About Manners was published in 2013.

When Im not teaching or writing, I enjoy outdoor sports, reading, photography and drawing.
