This is my 14th year at Woodside Elementary School. It’s been an amazing experience and this year looks to continue in that tradition. Starting in 2018, I will be the school's full-time roving substitute on campus.
I grew up in Miami and have 6 siblings – 5 brothers and 1 sister. Poor Claire- at least she is always the favorite sister. We grew up an active and rambunctious bunch. My mother was a former 1st grade teacher, always trying to keep us under control. I feel parents are always the first and best teachers.
My teaching experience started overseas. I taught English in South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and India. Traveling and teaching was a great experience but nothing compares to having your own class and getting to know the families in your community.
I like to bring some of my traveler’s adventuresome spirit into my classroom, as well as the lessons my parents instilled in me. I believe we learn by doing, making, growing, playing, sharing and enjoying. Here is to a year filled with health and happiness!
