I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with a minor in Education and Applied Psychology. I also received my Associate of Arts in Liberal Studies from East Los Angeles College. I'm looking forward to starting my graduate studies and attaining my Master's and Teaching Credential in the the near future.
My college years presented me with many tutoring and mentoring opportunities. I helped students with homework, school projects, and showed them basic computer skills. For the past eight years I've worked with students ranging from Primary level to third grade in a private school. As a co-teacher I have taught elementary math, social studies, and language arts. I enjoy teaching math and reading because both subjects are intellectually challenging and enriching.
I enjoy challenging myself and learning new things daily. During my free time I love to read, exercise, and draw. My goal is to provide students with the utmost respect in a comfortable learning environment in which they feel successful. I provide enrichment activities and like to correlate school subjects to every day life so that students can make a connection. My education philosophy is that students learn best when they are having fun. I believe that's one of my many strengths: creating fun lessons.
