My journey in education has been so much fun. I studied nutrition and dietetics with an emphasis in chemistry graduating with honors and soon enjoyed sharing my knowledge through consulting. The bug for teaching quickly grew and I acquired a multi-subject teaching credential while working in a small K-8 elementary school assembling the first computer lab. Passionate about my new venture, I moved to a larger district and taught 3rd and 4th grades excited about bringing in new field trips to Yosemite, the state capital and wrangling in a few horses to showcase cowboy times. Now an online instructor, I take the time to read all about my students’ ideas in their classrooms and love to locate additional resources for them. I am so grateful for an amazing group of online colleagues and educators that share and learn from each other.
