This year I am teaching a 1st/2nd grade combination class and it happens to be my 25th year of teaching.  My first year of teaching was in the Cotati-Rohnert Park School District, where I taught 2nd grade.  I found my way to Antioch in 1999, and taught at Jack London Elementary for 13 years before joining the Leopard family in 2012.

I grew up on a dairy farm in Petaluma.  Growing up in the country was a great experience that influences me today.  I have a love for nature/science and sports.  I played 3 sports (basketball, volleyball, softball) in high school and went on to play basketball in college.  I use what I learned from being on team sports to manage my classroom, to encourage students to always put forth their best effort, and to follow their dreams.

After high school, I went to Chico State and earned a degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.  After graduating I worked in a preschool, with 2 year olds, in Pt. Reyes Station for one year.  I loved the time I spent with the 2 years olds, but I realized I wanted to work with older children.  I got my Teaching Credential from Sonoma State, taught for five years and went back and earned a Masters Degree in Education from Hayward. 

I currently live in Brentwood with my husband, Kenny, who is a 6th grade teacher in our district.  We have 2 daughters, Keely (17) and Brenna (14).  I am excited to get "back into the classroom" and start teaching again!!
