1ST GRADE TEACHER / MATH AND SCIENCE
I am the first grade Teacher of Math and Science. When I first joined the CHP community, I served as a Course Instructor for Abacus Training, which was an aftercare program designed to develop mental arithmetic skills in young children. Then I moved into the role of Kindergarten Teacher.
I discovered my teaching skills when I tutored two little girls while I was still a student. My love for teaching grew along with their love for learning. It was immensely satisfying to see their wonderful progression during those two years. They transitioned from being reluctant students to becoming excited and curious about learning. Thus began my journey as a teacher.
Being a teacher has enabled me to positively impact the learning experiences of all of my students. The early grades are very important in students’ lives as they lay the foundation for future academic success. Helping my students build that solid foundation is inspirational!

Third graders started off 2019 on a great note by visiting the assisted living facility. They sang a few songs and also played the recorder under the guidance of the music teacher. The students also read a few books to seniors at the facility and were praised for their fluency in reading and their confidence in conducting themselves. Great job third grade!

In the early ‘80s, she began her journey as an educator working with physically and intellectually challenged children. It was hard work, and the children often made very minimal progress. However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
