I have been involved in education for sixteen years. My first two years were spent as a Reading Intervention Teacher for grades 3-5. For the past fourteen years, I have gained experience teaching grades 1st through 6th. I currently teach 3rd grade at Shaffer Elementary in the Atwater Elementary School District. This year my class is operating with one-to-one Chrome Books. Each summer I serve as a teacher for the UC Merced Migrant Writing Academy for the migrant students of Atwater. Last year, every student in the Writing Academy was given a Galaxy Tablet paid for by Migrant Education. We found many creative ways to incorporate technology in our writing classroom. I am also a Teacher Consultant for the UC Merced Writing Project.
