I am so excited to start the 18/19 school year with my Sycamore Academy Family of dedicated and child centered professionals.
This is my fourth year at Sycamore Academy. I am looking forward this year to guide students, teachers and families through the wonderful world of literacy as the school's Reading Specialist.
I have been teaching for over twenty years and have a Masters in Reading and Language Arts from Cal State University San Marcos. Some of my teaching experience include Spanish Bilingual, Structured English Immersion, GATE, Title 1 Support, Reading Specialist, Homeschool Advisor, Humanities and Multiage Constructivist. I am a lifelong learner so I try to participate in every training that is offered to me. Brain research on learning is my favorite. It makes my day when I can get children excited and invested in reading.
I have five beautiful boys that I cherish. I live with my wonderful husband, Charlie and my two youngest boys, Matthew and Nicholas (13 and 15), in Huntington Beach. I love walking in the evening on the beach and I even appreciate my early morning commute when I can have uninterrupted think and listen time.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all
