I have been teaching in Temecula since 2004, and I am very excited to be a part of Bella Vista Middle School. 

I live in Murrieta with my family. When I am not working, we love to travel and ski. We spend a lot of time at our cabin in Big Bear and in Colorado. My son, Sam is studying business at University of Colorado, Boulder. 

Mission Statement: My mission is to prepare students to achieve their goals through successful application of academic principles and diverse cultural and social experiences. I will inspire students to build self-esteem by creating a nurturing environment for each child to reach their highest potential and become self-motivated and productive members of society.
