I am so excited to be part of the Coronado Hills community this year! I have been teaching English Language Development since 2003. I started teaching in Adams 12 Five Star Schools in 2010 at Westview Elementary, after beginning my career teaching students from all over the world in Brooklyn, NY. My Bachelor of Arts degree in English is from the University of Southern Mississippi and my Master of Arts degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages is from Hunter College in New York City. A few things that I enjoy about being an ELD teacher are working with students from diverse backgrounds to help them achieve their English language goals, and celebrating students' growth as they progress through the grade levels. When I’m not teaching, I like traveling, reading, cycling and camping with my husband, Evan.
