Welcome to EL! Working with children is my passion, and I am so excited to be working with you and your child here at Village Meadows. My teaching careeer began in DVUSD. I taught as a second grade teacher for seven years and loved the community. After my seventh year, I decided to fulfill my dream of teaching abroad. I moved to Shenzhen, China, and spent the next two years teaching Kindergarten at a private international school. Every day felt like an adventure. I learned so much about asian culture, teaching EL students and adapting to a foreign environment. I now know what it feels like to live in a place where I did not know the language and had to connect and communicate without words. I also know the joy you feel when you overcome this challenge and thrive. As an EL Specialist, I hope to build your child's confidence in their understanding of English and empower them with tools to make them most successful in school.
When I am not teaching, I can often be found exploring. A few of my favorites are traveling, hiking, and experiencing new foods and cultures. I also enjoy dancing, playing Ukelele and spending quality time with family and friends.
It is an honor to work with you and your child this year. I look forward to getting to know you all over the next year!
