Hello Brookhaven Fifth Grade!

I'm very excited to be teaching at Brookhaven this year! I have been teaching for 25 years in the upper grades, with an emphasis in science. I especially love astronomy and ecology. I am a PYLUSD alum as I attended Golden, Tuffree, and El Dorado High School. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Liberal Studies which demonstrated how math, sciences, art, and literature are interconnected. With this background, I strive to have curriculum overlap to make learning more relevant and more deeply understood. My husband of 25 years and I have two young adult children. Charlie is a junior at Cal State Fullerton and my daughter, Courtney just enrolled at CSUF with plans to go to law school. We live in Placentia and play with a crazy beagle named Coco. I enjoy walking on the beach any time of year and getting my hands dirty working in the yard.
