I’m excited about working with you and your child in the 2018-19 school year! I’m passionate about teaching and building a community of learners in my classroom, which this year is in Room 19.

I’m eager to take on my new role this year as Coordinator and Learning Academy Teacher. In addition to my new administrative role, I will be working with students who need a little extra support with reading. I’m looking forward to working with students in small groups to ensure their academic success. I approach my work as an educator with great humility, understanding the awesome responsibility that it comes with. I believe in the importance of teaching the whole child. The role of the teacher is not only to teach, but also to help monitor and shape the social and emotional aspects of life at school. I pride myself in being collaborative with my colleagues, in being a life-long learner, and in developing a love of reading and learning in my students.

I hold a Bachelors Degree from UCLA, as well as a Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. Besides being a teacher, I am the mother of two recent college grads. My experience as both a parent and a teacher has given me perspective and insight that I bring with me in my role as an educator. I look forward to working with you to make this year a very positive and successful year for your child!
