I have been teaching for over 20 year. Second grade is my current teaching position.  In the past, I taught kindergarten and first grade. Additionally, I have worked with third and fourth grade in our after school STEAM program. I work in one of the poorest school in the country. Working with kids in poverty is my passion. I create things to help my students achieve their goals. My students are able to take some of thing home that I make and keep them there for practice. I have a daughter who is going to be a freshman this year.  I also have two cats and love animals.
