Hello, and welcome! This year is my fourth year teaching in the Valley View 365U School District. I teach English as a Second Language between John R. Tibbott and Jonas E. 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 and have begun training for my first Ironman triathlon this October!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with my students this year!
