About Me: I am a Highly Qualified Teacher in Arizona with a full Structured English Immersion Endorsement. I am currently teaching in a resource setting at FriendlyHouse Inc., Academia Del Pueblo (ADP) Charter School (K-8) and this is my second year at ADP and as a teacher. My goal is to get my Master's Degree in Special Education in the field of Autism and/or Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. The following are the various schools that I have attended and my current certifications: Post-Bachelor's in Special Education: Cross-Categorical (K-12) at Rio Salado Community College in 2011 Undergraduate Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education (K-8) at Northern Arizona University in 2008 Associate's Degree in General Studies at South Mountain Community College in 2005 My favorite wildlife animals are bears, my top favorite is the panda bear because they love to eat bamboo and I love salads! My favorite extinct species are dinosaurs because my dad read me a book (when I was five years old) about a boy who befriends a dinosaur and I'm still learning about them. My favorite childhood books, to this day, are "Go,Dog! Go!," "Put Me in the Zoo" and its sequel, and "Are You My Mother?"
