Hello, and welcome! This year is my sixth year teaching in the Valley View 365U School District. I work 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, I have two daughters: a three year-old and a baby who was born this past April. They certainly keep me busy! I also enjoy running and racing in long distance events like marathons, and I enjoy competing in triathlons. I am an Ironman triathlete :)
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with all the Tibbott ESL students this year!
