About Me

I am passionate about teaching reading and writing to young students using purposeful methods, and have a strong pedagogical foundation in teaching language arts. I have been teaching at the elementary school level for 12 years, provided continuing education courses to teachers, as well as providing workshops for teachers in the area of writing. I have always kept up with technology advancements in education and have seamlessly integrated technology usage into my lessons. My newest role in the district I teach is as a Teacher Librarian. My work as a Teacher Librarian will include working with students, teachers, and Library Technicians on library skills, researching, and the integration of technology. I am taking the library outside of the four walls that contain the collection.

I have a strong philosophy of teachers teaching teachers which comes from my work with the San Joaquin Valley Writing Project (SJVWP). For over 5 years I have been a Teacher Consultant with the SJVWP. As a Teacher Consultant for the SJVWP I have done many presentations on writing techniques and have been able to learn and teach about technological uses in the classroom. Additionally, I worked as a tech liaison with the SJVWP as a link between the California Writing Project (CWP), the National Writing Project (NWP), Teacher Consultants, and other interested teachers. My involvement and commitment to the California Writing Project has been through work with CWP Connections. My work with the National Writing Project has included presenting at their National Conference and work to build a web presence through one of their Technology Retreats.

My credentials include: a BA in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University, and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, a MA in Education: Reading and Language Arts, and a Specialist Reading Credential from Fresno State, and am working on a MA in Teacher Librarianship and a Teacher Librarian Credential from Fresno Pacific University.
