My Students

I have the honor of teaching in the same school district I grew up in. My students come from migrant, farm-working families, and because we are on the Yakama Nation Native American Reservation, we have the privilege of having Native American students in our room too. We receive 100% free lunch and breakfast as we are in a high-poverty, Title one school and many of my students are learning the English language as well.

I am extremely proud of my background because it helps me relate to my students, and being bi-lingual also helps me communicate with families.

I attained my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and Organization. My passion is STEAM teaching as I am also a Project Lead the Way LAUNCH teacher.

My goal as a teacher is not only to provide academic mastery and teach the fundamentals of learning, but most importantly to teach students that they can achieve anything they put their minds too! I strongly agree with John Ships quote, "Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story."

My Project

Help me get my SLEEP on at the National Get Your Teach On Conference held in San Diego, CA on June 24-June 26, 2017! This conference is a gathering of many top teachers in the nation sharing their experiences and motivating teachers to promote engaging learning opportunities for all students. I was fortunate enough to get funded to attend the conference, now I ask for financial support so I can stay at the hotel recommend by the conference.

I know this opportunity will be once in a lifetime for my teaching career, learning new skills, tips and tricks from top teachers from around the country will provide me with professional development that will profoundly impact my teaching!

Please help me be the best teacher I can be for my students by growing and learning from these amazing educators!
