Biography
Whitney has been teaching for over ten years. She has taught in public and private schools throughout the Bay Area. For the past two years, she has been teaching at Saint Vincent De Paul School in San Francisco while completing her credential and Masters's program at the University of San Francisco. Her true passion is in transitional kindergarten. She taught preschool for six years in Mountain View. She is thankful to return to this age where together, we can use inquiry to drive learning through students' interests and hands-on activities. Whitney's other true passion is art. She enjoys igniting students' creativity by introducing students to inspiring artists and new mediums. As an educator, I believe it is our job to launch students’ passions and support them on their learning journey. Whitney loves to go paddleboarding on the Bay with her two daughters and husband in her spare time. Her cat is thankful to stay home.
