Degrees and Certifications:
Hello third grade families and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I love teaching third grade at Chief Joseph and am looking forward to getting to know you and your family this year!
I completed my bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies at California State University, Fresno in 2001. I also completed my teaching credential there with endorsements in K-8 Education, Reading Specializations, CLAD, and ESL.
Outside of the classroom, my husband and I have been married 16 years and have four beautiful children! One of my kiddos is a first grader at CJE, two are in middle school, and one is in high school. Our children keep us busy with softball, dance, cross country, soccer, and Ju-Jitsu. I love every minute of watching them grow and do the things they love. Outside of the classroom I enjoy crafting, reading, and coaching.
I am excited to get to know each of you and look forward to learning together!
*** In order to help you with your school shopping, I would like to clarify a few items from the district 3rd grade list that students will need in school. The 3-Ring binder they need should be no larger than 1 inch wide. All students will need 3 "Composition Books", NOT the spiral notebooks. Also, pens are not needed. I would also prefer that Sanitizing wipes along with 1 bottle of hand sanitizer be bought. Batteries DO NOT need to be purchased. We always run low on pencils, so please send plenty while they are on sale! Do not send more than 24 crayons, a set of 12 colored markers, and 12-24 colored pencils. Finally, please purchase Elmer's Glue-All instead of School Glue if you can. The school glue is watered down and ruins many art projects. ALL supplies need to fit inside of a small, regular size pencil box. Desks do not have room for larger boxes.
