I have 7 years of experience working with students at the elementary, middle and high school level in Los Angeles and Orange counties. I have a passion for educating all students and my diversified assignments have allowed me to utilize my knowledge and skills in research-based best practices to improve student achievement. As the daughter of an educator, I have been inspired since I was a child to pursue a career that would allow me to use my gifts and talents in the service of others. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies Elementary Education with an emphasis in Life Science and a Minor in Biology. I also hold an Associate???s degree in Science and Math.
I have passed my CBEST exam and am now working toward full certification to attain a professional clear multiple subject teaching credential. I am passionate about teaching and the power it holds to transform children???s lives. I believe that every child deserves a great teacher ??? someone who is skilled, caring and models what it is to be a life-long learner. As my resume details, I also have post-secondary art training and play piano and percussive instruments. I am a proponent of the arts and have spent hours on community service projects painting murals and teaching after school art classes. I also served as a master teacher for an Orange County arts program.
My ability to relate, encourage and work collaboratively has been instrumental in my success as a team member in the places that I???ve worked. I currently have 10 tutoring students and tutor them in many subjects successfully. I truly believe that all students can learn and it just takes the right person to light the fire.
