Hello! I've been a public school elementary teacher for over 20 years and I love teaching at Lietz Elementary school with my Kindergarten team!
I attended Biola University for my undergraduate degree, San Francisco State for my multiple subjects teaching credential, and San Jose State for my Masters in Education and Reading Specialist credential.
I've been married for over 25 years to my husband, Dale, and together we have Anna, our college-age daughter. I enjoy going on long hikes, spending time with my family and reading. I have traveled to many parts of the world including Russia, the Philippines, Japan, Yucatan peninsula, Latvia, Sweden, London and Rwanda. I've lived in Southern and Northern California, New York, Oahu, and Maui, but my favorite place is the Bay Area-close to our families!
