I believe teaching and learning should be fun! The more the students are engaged, the more joy we'll have teaching them. I have a very personal style and I love to see the happy smiles on the faces of my students. My philosophy has always been this: "Think before you speak. Give your best to their learning. Make them feel like geniuses."
I enjoyed teaching 19 years in grades 3, 4, and 5 in a rural California school district. I also spent a summer teaching English in China. I have a Masters Degree in Teaching and a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. I also had the honor of receiving two Excellence in Education Awards from our County Office of Education.
I am a published author of hundreds of educational articles and many books, 12 of them for English learners, (EL, ESL). I'm bilingual in English and Spanish. Creating teaching resources and teacher organizers to share with you is my passion. My mission is to help you streamline your teaching day with quality products because every teacher deserves the weekend to relax!
I believe teaching should be innovative and creative. I hope my products engage your students and get them excited about learning.
