A little about me. Some of my favorite things: children, books, chocolate, enchiladas, chocolate Ibarra and WATER! I love reading historical books, visiting national landmarks and parks. I have been with the district since 2000. I did substitute teaching for 6 years and have been a classroom teacher for 12 years now. I have been at Emerson Bandini for 10 years. I have taught all grades except for 2nd grade. I used to think that the best grades were 5th and 6th but I have found that I love the little ones. This is my 6th year in first grade.
