Rancho Cucamonga, California
I am a 4th grade Common Core Demonstration Teacher in San Bernardino, California.
Interests: I would like to help start a revolution in the education system. I have been teaching for over 20 years and I believe now is our time to adapt and evolve and really look at the way we teach the future generations. Join me as I analyze how we teachers teach. Join me as I vulnerably show you my trials, errors, and successes!
