elementary and middle school level.

She received her doctorate in Curriculum & Instruction. She has been active in the Yuma educational community
for twenty-three years. As an ESL endorsed educator, Vicki most enjoys helping students improve their academic
language through mathematics and science strategies and hands-on learning. The combination of mathematics,
science, and language was the focus of Vicki’s doctoral dissertation.
