Biography

I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in English in 2013, and received my multiple subject teaching credential from there as well in 2015. I spent 8 years in the classroom as an instructional aide before going back to school to finish my long-overdue degree. This is my 4th year teaching, and my first year in 4th grade.

I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference. I am passionate about quality education and have a special place in my heart for children. I am of the belief that these years in a child’s education pass by quickly and we have but a very short amount of time to instill a solid educational foundation and a love of learning.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and moved to Hilmar in 1978. I arrived in Patterson in 2006. I am married to a wonderful man, and between us we have four terrific kids. When I am not at school I like to spend time in Monterey and Pacific Grove with my family. I love reading books that make me laugh until I cry, and I like watching movies that stay with me long after they are over. A few facts about me: I should own stock in Starbucks, I can drive a tractor and milk a cow like nobody’s business and I love to make people laugh. My favorite book and movie is To Kill a Mockingbird.
