Welcome to my page! Here's a bit of information to get to know me better! I have 3 children, Madilyn 23, Audra 20, and Kaleb 12. I've been a teacher for over 20 years. I taught 1st grade for almost a decade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade for 9 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, enjoy spending time as a family, especially with my son's baseball teams, and at our beach house in Grover Beach!
Regarding my classroom, 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 partner in his/her fabulous learning experience in 5th grade!
