I have been teaching with the Los Angeles Unified School District for twenty years. My favorite grade is kindergarten. I love my work. I also love to travel around the world and meet other teachers and see how their educational systems work. I try to bring the world into my classroom through music, literature, geography, art, etc. to open my students' imagination to what exists outside the classroom.

Areas of Interest: 
geography,
travel,
