Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to begin my 20th year of teaching this year and be at Frontier Elementary School (Go Mustangs!!). I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Fresno in 1994, my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from National University in 2002, and a Masters degree in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix in 2008.
I love my family and spending time with them. My husband, Mike, is a retired Navy Chief and retired 5th grade teacher and together we have five beautiful children. Our kids are officially out on their own, working and going to school, so the only "kids" at home are our cats; Theo, Oliver and Sadie.
Two people that were very special to me are the reason as to why I became a teacher. It is because of these two women that I knew at a young age I would become a teacher and have a passion for teaching children. Mrs. Lana Kessler, my grandma, and Mrs. Dorothy Nichols, my 5th grade teacher. My favorite subjects in school were reading and social studies.
