• Hello! 

    Welcome to fourth grade at Folsom Hills, home of the Foxes!

    This is my third year at Folsom Hills; allow me to introduce myself.  I previously taught fourth grade in Rancho Cordova.  This  will be my 21st year of teaching.  During my teaching career I have taught every grade K-12 with the exception of first and second.  Obviously, fourth is best!  

    I am the happy mom to three teenagers~ 2 sons and a daughter.  I am truly lucky!  When I'm not on campus I am probably at a baseball game or a swim meet watching one of my kids compete.  When I'm not watching, I'm participating.  I love hiking, running, paddle boarding and hot yoga.  I'm even a certified yoga instructor, so we may be doing some downward dogs on rainy days.

    My philosophy in the classroom is to always keep it loving and positive in a structured environment.  We will work hard and learn much, but my approach is low stress.  We'll keep working on concepts until they are mastered.  Students will be clear on learning objectives and the steps to be successful in each subject.  I want students to love school and to love learning.
