I've been married to my husband, Kevin, for 27 years, who is a high school Agriculture instructor. We have 3 children, Madilyn 21, Audra 18, and Kaleb 11. I've been a teacher for over 20 years. I taught 1st grade for almost a decade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade for 6 years now, all here at Pioneer.
I received my BA in Liberal Studies from California State Bakersfield and my teaching credential from Chapman University.
We live on a small farm raising sheep, goats, and pigs. We enjoy spending time at our cabin and beach house!
Your child becomes my "kiddo" for the school year, as we will spend over 1,200 hours together! I am very protective of my students, and treat them as my own...however, along with that comes high expectations in regards to paying attention, giving 110% effort, GRIT, an Open Mindset, and a heart and mind to be kind and helpful to each other in words and actions.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your child this school year, as we partnership in his/her fabulous learning experience in 5th grade!
