Teaching is what I have always wanted to do. I declared my love for teaching when I was in elementary school and continue to love teaching every single day. I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a BA in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Afterwards, I got my MA in Educational Technology from Azusa Pacific University. I have been teaching in the Fountain Valley School District since 2007. Five of those years were in 4th grade, one year in 3rd grade, and the rest as a 1st grade teacher. At home, my husband and I have two amazing little boys that keep us very busy. We love riding bikes, dressing up like super heroes, reading books, and making forts. These two cuties are the reason why I have been (and love) job sharing with Mrs. Boktor since 2012.
