Welcome to my page.
I have been
teaching for 26 years! I started my
career in Colton at Wilson
Elementary School and moved to San Bernardino after a
I taught for many
years at Monterey Elementary School and have been here at Kendall for about 18 years. I am now teaching the
children of previous students and that is a fun! I have
taught at a variety of preschools. In the public schools, I have taught kindergarten,
first, second and third grades, but my passion is for kindergarten.
I hear all the
time about teachers getting “burned out” and I don’t understand it. I LOVE teaching kindergarten. There is not a day that goes by, that I am
not grateful for the career that I have chosen and the job that I have.
I have high
expectations for my students and they always meet and often exceed them. I love that they come in not even knowing
alphabet letters and in a few months they are actually reading. I still cry
every time a child decodes his/her first word.
There is no greater job in the world!
