3rd Grade Teacher


Courses Taught




I worked in child care for 18 years going from being a teacher to a director. I enjoyed my job very much but found myself spending more time at the center than with my own children. I changed jobs and became a teacher's aide at Holtville working with Kindergartners. I realized after a year of this I was ready to go back to school and finish my degree in Education. I was a teacher's aide for 5 years while going back to school at AUM. Upon graduation in 2002, I was blessed with a teaching position at Holtville as a 3rd grade teacher. I taught 3rd grade for 2 years before moving to my first love Kindergarten.

Children grow up so fast. You have to enjoy every minute. I enjoy working with young children. I believe that Kindergarten is a very important year in every child's live. This is a time when most children decide if they like school or not. It is not only important to teach them all the academics that are required but to also help to develop positively, socially and emotional. My goal is to create a learning environment that will help them develop a desire for learning. This involves giving them a solid foundation in which to build upon in later years.
