I am a 4th grade teacher in northern California in the San Francisco Bay area. I have an M.A. in Clinical Psychology and I am passionate about helping kids discover their strengths and become excited about learning. Children are puzzles, all put together in their own unique designs. I learn more and more each day from students as I see them build their awareness and confidence that they "can learn" when given both strategies that work for them along with validation that everyone learns "their way."
