Degrees and Certifications:
This will be my 1st year teaching, and I am really excited. I have always wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember, but life took me down a different path after graduating from California State University, Sacramento in 2006. There I attained a Bachelors Degree in English. After becoming a parent, I realized that teaching was still the career that I wanted to pursue. In 2019, I became a substitute teacher, and in 2020, I began my dream to become a teacher. During distance learning I was a long-term substitute for a 4th grade class at Lone Tree Elementary.
I was born and raised in Antioch, and I grew up in the house my dad was raised in. I live in Antioch, with my daughter Payton. My daughter is a 5th grader at Belshaw Elementary.
My daughter and I love animals, we have 3 cats, Fawn, Rosetta, and Lucifer. Yes, they all are named after Disney characters! Fawn and Rosetta came from "Tinker Bell" and Lucifer’s name came from "Cinderella." We also have a Russian Tortoise named Tiki, from not only the Tiki Room at Disneyland but "Miraculous Ladybug." We are also huge Disney people!
