I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade in the Pastures of Heaven at Washington Union School. The 2016-2017 school year will be my sixteenth year teaching in the WUSD.  I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.  In addition to this, I attended Chapman University and earned my California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Master of Arts Degree in Education - Curriculum and Instruction.  In my spare time I enjoy being active, especially outdoors, which includes walking, hiking, jogging, biking, snowboarding, and spending time at our central coast's beautiful beaches.
