I grew up in Santa Rosa and attended both Santa Rosa Junior College and Sonoma State University. After I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies, I attended Dominican University for my credential. I have been a teacher for the past 8 years, teaching 3rd grade for the majority of those years. I began my career teaching first grade in Petaluma and then moved on to teaching upper grade at both Altimira Middle School and El Verano. Teaching any grade is always fun!
I LOVE to do projects and seem to find myself always doing something exciting and new! I enjoy art, music, and learning about anything and everything there is out there. In my classroom, my students and I are constantly up for trying out new ideas, especially in science, and we have a great time creating things that are a reflection of ourselves. I enjoy making my classroom a happy place to learn each year with my students.
I am a very active teacher in our school. I am on several small committees, as well as the ELAC/DELAC staff representative, Exploratorium Leadership, District Leadership, and a member of the Language Arts Committee.
My door is always open and I am committed to helping everyone learn no matter what! I am here for my students, parents, staff and community. So, feel free to contact me or just come on by! It will be great meeting you!
