Teaching is a second career for me. Prior to teaching, I worked as a paralegal in Pennsylvania and Arizona. I have been a resource specialist for 8 years. I enjoy teaching students who need extra support in order to be successful.
I hold a multiple subject general education teaching credential, as well as mild to moderate and moderate to severe special education teaching credentials. I have a master's degree in special education. I obtained my degrees and credentials from California State University San Marcos.
About My Classroom
I teach a 5th grade Read 180 class. There are 15 students in my class. Some of my students are English language learners, special day students, resource students, and general education students who are at risk.
Experience and Training
I have attended the Read 180 training provided by Scholastic, as well as been a part of the MVUSD Read 180 community for the past two years.
Why I Teach READ 180 and/or System 44
I am an RSP teacher, and quite a few of the students on my classroom benefit from the Read 180 program.
