Happy 2017 - 2018 School Year!

Welcome and thank you for visiting my webpage! 
I am a First/Second Grade (Combo) teacher at our awesome
Mount Pleasant Elementary STEAM Academy. I look forward to working with our scholars in both First and Second grade this year, especially getting them on the path to college! We will have a chance to incorporate my Yale University reading, research, and curriculum components into our First & Second Grade PBLs (Project Based Learning units) for an even more in-depth and dynamic learning experience!

Our class and school is full of Superhero Scholars! We will nurture our leadership skills, help each other, work hard together, sing together, and stay active together. We will practice being Leaders at Mt. Pleasant as our school becomes a Leader In Me lighthouse school for the city of San Jose. Our 7 Habits vocabulary words include responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal. We are developing strong Leadership qualities and character! Our First & Second Grade team has engaging and fun projects ahead to continue our Leader In Me principles not just at home and at school, but also into the community. 

 Stay Ready!
& Let's Do Our Very Best!
Always!
