This is my 24th year of teaching. I have taught first, second, third grade and 3rd- 5th Title One Reading in California and North Carolina. The last 5 years I have been a K-3 lead teacher. This year I willcontinue to be the lead teacher for K/1. As a lead teacher I support the teachers by modeling lessons, preparing materials, leading PLC's and working with small groups of students when my schedule allows. I am also in charge of our LLI program. LLI is a program where children read books at their level every single day for 30 minutes in a small group. The program includes phonics/word work, fluency, comprehension and writing. I also help support our Bridges Math program. Bridges is a program that provides students a chance to work on math right at their level using lots of manipulatives to help them understand concepts. Our TA's and tutors teach these groups and I provide them with any support they need. Away from school I enjoy spending time with my family and dog. I love to travel to the beach and mountains. I am a huge football fan. The Los Angeles Rams are my favorite team. I also enjoy reading a good book, yoga, scrapbooking, sleeping in, going to church and going out to eat.
