Mrs. McCullum 4th Grade

I attended the University of California, Santa Barbara and earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees. After receiving my master's degree in Education, I began teaching at Jefferson Elementary School in 1999. I enjoyed teaching third grade at Jefferson for seven years and then started my own educational company, Brainiacs Science Discovery Center in Redondo Beach. Children had an  opportunity to participate in hands-on science experiments and fun learning science! Returning to the classroom one year later, I taught third grade at Tulita Elementary School for in Redondo Beach for seven years. I stepped out of the classroom for the last four years, to teach advanced graduate courses at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the Education department. I really enjoy mentoring new teachers in my UCLA classes. It has been a pleasure returning to the classroom and teaching fourth grade at Birney!
