You can also reach me on my google voice number at (925) 289-8696 during normal school hours. Please see Web resources for sites and apps you can access with your child. I will be checking my email reguarly from home. I hope everybody stays healthy and safe. My set office hours are 8-9 and 2-3 every day. Students will have a schedule in Microsoft teams with links to live video interactions and assignments on SeeSaw and Boom Cards. Each student will receive log in information for all web sites when you pick up your welcome packet on September 2nd.
I have been teaching for 18 years in Special Day Classes. I attended San Jose State University for the majority of my bachelor degree and my credential program. I did attend UC Santa Barbara for 2 years prior to San Jose State University to study Marine Biology. I started teaching in San Jose at the Santa Clara County Office of Education where I taught a kindergarten to third grade class for children with Autism. I moved to Antioch Unified School District in 2008-2009 school year. I have enjoyed working with my students who are kindergarten to second grade at Mno Grant Elementary.
I have an awesome staff in our room. Classroom IA's are Colette McIntyre and Stephanie Carniglia. This year we have 3 aides assigned to specific students. They are: Sylivia Florez, Mia Valentine, and Kalisha Austin. All of our staff is dedicated to our students and enriching their school experience as well as helping them all reach their IEP goals. We all look forward to working with you and your children.
The best way to reach me during the school day is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If after school, you may be able to reach me on the classroom phone at (925) 779-7465 extension 20203.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my niece and nephew (5 and 11 years old) and my 2 dogs. I enjoy scrapbooking, quilting, and reading.
We have 3 rules in our class:
- Listen and Follow directions/ try your best
- Keep your hands and feet to yourself
- Walk in the classroom and around campus
