Hello Paloma Panthers!
I'm so happy to start my second year at Paloma. The community has been so welcoming to me and I am so thankful for the meaningful connections I have made. I look forward to continuing to build relationships this school year. 
All grades are special in their own way, but my heart lives for third grade. I have taught a variety of grade levels for the past 17 years. This year will be my 6th year teaching 3rd grade. I received my bachelors in Liberal Studies as well as my teaching credential from InterAmerican College in San Diego. I then continued my education and received a Masters in Education with an emphasis in reading and literacy from National University. I am currently in the process of taking courses through UCSD for Educational Technology. 
I was born and raised in neighboring San Diego. My family and I moved to Temecula in 2009, and my three children all went to TVUSD schools. My husband and I are proud parents of a UCI graduate and UCR and UCLA students! When our family is able to get together, we enjoy watching movies and traveling to new places.
