I’ve changed jobs!  (Below you can read what my ‘About’ was in the past. ) I am a Teacher On Special Assignment in a Program Improvement District in North San Diego County, California.  I’m working with 4th and 5th grade teachers to help improve math instruction and achievement and to bein implementation of CCSSM.  It’s going to be a challenge but I was up for a change!  I’ll keep you posted.

PRIOR TO THIS YEAR

I am a second career teacher getting ready to start my 15th year teaching middle school math.

Currently I teach in a middle school that is in its 5th year of Program Improvement.  The school is located in the heart of a gang injunction area in a fast growing low poverty community. The student population is 95% Hispanic and 98% free and reduced lunch.

When I started teaching at age 45 I had no intention of teaching in a ‘barrio’ school. That is for the young teachers, I remarked. Eight years later I was the only middle school teacher in the District to voluntarily transfer to the restructured lowest middle  school in the District.

On a personal note, I am a naturalized American, an immigrant from the North.  I have been married for 31 years.  My husband has a PhD in organic chemistry and works in the biotechnology field.  I have 2 children of whom I am inordinately proud.  My son is a middle school SPED teacher, my daughter is a high school math teacher.

Anything else you want to know about me you can glean from my blogs.
