All About Me

This is my 28th year of teaching.  I graduated from UC Riverside with a BA in Liberal Studies and I received my teaching credential from San Jose State University.  I began my teaching career teaching 5th grade in the Mtn. View/Whisman School District. I taught for 5 years in that school district teaching 5th grade, 2nd grade and a 2/3 combination class.  I met my husband (also a teacher) and had my daughter, Mikaela.  We moved from Sunnyvale to Folsom and I began working for the Folsom Cordova Unified School District.  I taught for 9 years at Folsom Hills Elementary School teaching 1st and 2nd grade.  I was very fortunate to be able to job share, raise my daughter and have another child, my son, Marshall. I then came to Mather Heights Elementary. I taught 3 years in kindergarten , 3 years in 2nd grade Academy, 6 years in 3rd grade and last year I taught a 2/3 combination class. This year I will be teaching 2nd grade.  I love teaching and can't imagine doing anything else! Along with teaching, I also love traveling, reading, cooking and spending time with my family.
