I bring with me over 20 years of educational experience. I have been teaching at the elementary level for 15 years, was a literacy coach for 3 years, and worked at the San Diego County Office of Education as Language Arts Coordinator for 8 years. This is my 5th year at Temecula Valley Unified School District teaching 4th grade after moving from San Diego in order to be closer to my family.
Teaching is my passion. I love being with the students, who lift me up every day. I can't imagine doing anythiing else. They inspire me with their great ideas, light bulbs igniting before my eyes, and the endless supply of hugs and well wishes. My eyes tear up each time I have to say goodbye at the end of the year, but look forward to their visits for years to come.
