Welcome! I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher. I was born in Los Angeles and moved to Vista in 1985. I am the oldest of four girls and graduated from Vista High School in 1995. I graduated from UCLA (and was actually born at UCLA hospital) where I received my BA in history and minored in Public Policy. I received my credential from Cal State Northridge.
I began teaching in 2000 at Walgrove Elementary School in Venice, CA. I taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade and led teacher trainings at the district science center at our site. I began teaching at Nicolas Valley in 2004. I taught 2nd grade and later seved as the Title I reading specialist at NVES. I joined the kindergarten team in 2013.
I enjoy cooking, hiking, reading, and spending time at the beach. I am happiest near or in a body of water. :) My favorite pastime is spending time with my son. We love baseball (Go Padres!), spending time at the beach, watching movies, and spending time with our family.
