With the 2nd quarter of school done we have completed 50%, 0.5, 1/2 of the school year! I would like to celebrate some people for their dedication and exceptional effort. Everyone should model after them! Please read the classroom blog to see my celebrations!!!
ABOUT ME: I grew up in California and graduated as Valedictorian from a high school in Tracy. My graduation speech involved quotes from Cat in the Hat and Spongebob! (I love spongebob!) After high school, I went to UC Berkeley and got my Bachelors degree in Mathematics. After finishing college in three years, I went to San Jose State for my teaching credentials. I have taught in 2nd grade, 6th and 7th grade math, and summer school geometry classrooms. I am the oldest of 5 siblings. I played the violin for nine years and am looking to take it up again, but somehow never find the time. In my spare time I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, playing 3DS, Wii U or my N64 (yes teachers can play video games and this teacher plays a lot), and baking. Other random facts: I don't like coffee or dark chocolate. I like Jamba Juice and Menchie's frozen yogurt. I shop at GameStop and Target most often.
