My Philosophy The art of teaching ideas and concepts in a way that is both engaging and inspiring is a teacher's daily challenge. Through experience, I have learned that knowing the students I teach is the most important step. My definiton of "knowing" my students extend beyond knowing their individual learning style. Being aware of my students' family, culture, and community plays a significant role in the way I teach. It allows me to be a more understanding and responsive teacher.
My Environment I have taught elementary and middle school in Houston, Los Angeles and Oakland (Northern California). I have also taught in Okinawa, Japan in a dual Japanese-English language school.
