At a very young age I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Both of my parents were teachers, so I saw first hand the joys and difficulties that came with this job. At the age of 12, I began teaching dance to children within my local theatre company. I fell in love with performing, and in love with the feeling I had when teaching. I knew my life needed both of these in them! So I started on my path to making that become a reality! In 2002, I graduated from Cal State Hayward with my B.A. in Liberal Studies and a minor in Theatre Arts.

I’m now starting my 12th year teaching, and while my teaching strategies and management have changed some over the years, my philosophy has not. I want my students to WANT to come to my class, everyday, prepared and ready to learn. I believe strongly that classroom environment plays a huge role in the learning that takes place there. I believe every child is a reader, some just haven't found the right book yet! In my classroom students will learn the curriculum and lifelong skills including: critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and self reflection.

I love Union City and the community who lives here. When I’m not in my classroom you might find me out on the soccer field or baseball field. I have three elementary aged children who me keep busy, busy, busy and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
