Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. :)
I am a lover of Jesus, a pastor's wife, a bearer of 3 beautiful children, and a teacher at heart... in that order. :) I have been happily married to Greg for 12 yrs. I have 2 handsome boys (Isaac 8, Joshua 6) and one beautiful little girl (Karis, 2). Although I love my students, my kids are my favorite students to have.
I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Liberal Studies degree and received my credential and graduate degree at Azusa Pacific University with a Masters in Education with an emphasis on Teaching.
I have been teaching in So Cal for 13 yrs. I taught 3rd grade for 5 yrs, 1st grade (God bless 1st grade teachers!) for 1 yr, and am currently on my 7th yr teaching 2nd grade. I LOVE my second graders!
I love life and have a constant "movie" in my mind...hence the title of this blog. My husband says that my whole life is a movie and my classroom is my stage. Lol. He is right! Although I am known to be a "strict" teacher (so... I like order a little....ok, ok.. A LOT.). I enjoy having fun in class because, well... learning IS FUN! I love finding creative ways to teach my students, especially when I can add it to a chant or wear my "ghetto" hat and rap it. :) Can you just imagine this little Chinese girl rapping? Yup! It also brings a smile to my face when I hear my students doing it, too. They are learning AND having fun!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you will enjoy reading these snapshots of my life in and outside of the classroom.
