A Leader in Me School

Yvette Tibbs

Instructional Paraprofessional

I collaborate with the Literacy Interventionist and classroom teachers to teach small groups of students so that can reach and/or excel in their grade level Reading Benchmark goals.  I also work with small groups of students to help them achieve the steps in the writing process.

Educational and Professional Background

I started teaching in my high school senior year at KinderCare Learning Center.  I had a great time working at the Learning Center and it is there I decided to become a teacher.  I attended Crafton Hills College in Yucaipa, California in which I received my Associate of Science.  To further my education, I became an AmeriCorps Member. I served for two years in The Everyone Reads Program.  I completed the program working in the Snowline Joint Unified School District in Phelan, California.  It is through this program that I fell in love with teaching students to read.  I earned an AmeriCorps Education Stipend and attended California State University, San Bernardino.  In 2008, I completed a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies, and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential in 2010.   I also have a Colorado Teaching License.

Personal Interests and Hobbies

I love being outside in the fresh air!  I enjoy riding my horse, holding onto my husband as were riding our Harley and roaring down a dirt trail in my OHV.  My best memories are camping with my family and friends.  I feel most relaxed when I can sit in the grass next to my dog Lucy and my cat Charlie, listening to the wind in the trees and watching the sun twinkle on the landscape.
