Hello, and welcome! This year is my fifth year teaching in the Valley View 365U School District. This year, I will be working with all grades at Tibbott. I also used to work with students at Oak View and Jonas Salk Schools. Before teaching in Valley View, I taught ESL in a K-2 building and with middle schoolers. Teaching English learners means that I work with students whose primary language is other than English. We work on skills for speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I give students tools and strategies to bring back to their general classroom as they work on their proficiency with the English language.
Personally, my husband and I have a daughter who was born in March of 2017. She certainly keeps us busy! I also enjoy running, as I have completed 3 marathons. I also race triathlons and completed my first Ironman Triathlon last year!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with all the Tibbott ESL students this year!
