I started teaching in 1997 when I moved to Budapest, Hungary to teach English for two years. I also spent a year teaching English in Madrid, Spain. I began working at Tulsa in 2001 and during this time, I have taught in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This will be my seventh year teaching the 4th grade. Prior to becoming a teacher, I did my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
