About Me

With TCSD since: 2016

Education:

 

I am a Tulare Union Redskin, graduated in 1995. Attended COS and SJVC briefly. Obtained my vocational nursing license through Tulare Adult School in 2011.

I have been in the medical field for over 15 years in clinical settings here locally, the last 5 years at a local Skilled Nursing Facility as a LVN which, I still work for on an on-call basis. This is my second year working for a school district 2015-2016 thru VUSD and now TCSD.

I have worked with newborns to geriatrics, from general medicine to specilaty medicine including obstretics and mental health. I can truly say I have enjoyed every minute of it and making a difference in someone's life is very rewarding and satisfying. 

My priority and goal is to ensure your child is healthy and safe, be in class daily and be able to gain the upmost rewarding education possible.

Rules

1.       Listen when others are speaking.

2.      Raise your hand to speak.

3.      Be a caring friend.

4.      Play safely.

5.      Always do your best work!

Discipline Policy

Behavior in our class is monitored using the “Clip Up, Clip Down" chart. The chart has seven levels. Everyone begins the each day on “Ready to Learn”. If your child is having a great day, they can move up the chart to “Great Effort”, “Excellent”, and “Outstanding”. If they are making choices that do not show good character, the student can move down to “Think About It”, “Teacher’s Choice”, and “Parent Contact”. The child has the ability to move up and/or down throughout the day depending on their behavior. The chart helps the children realize that they have to have self-control and be responsible for their actions and behavior if they want to be recognized for making good choices.
