I am so happy to be teaching 5th grade again this year at Green Valley! Fifth graders are awesome and so much fun to be with! I look forward to being back in the classroom and hopefully a more normal year with my new amazing students.

 

I began my teaching career many years ago in Castro Valley. After my son was born, I took some time off to focus on my family, but I never doubted that I would return to the classroom. At first, I returned as the Barton Coordinator at Green Valley. I enjoyed working with and training the tutors, but I missed having a class of my own.  Soon, I found my way  back to the classroom part time in 2011. In 2016, I happily returned to full time teaching. Teaching is my passion as I truly LOVE working with children and helping them grow. I hope to teach my students to have a growth mindset and to love learning as much as I do.

 

I was born and raised in northern New Jersey.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the American University in Washington DC. Because teaching jobs were scarce, I was advised to choose another path, so I initially pursued a marketing degree. Upon graduation, I moved west to California and have been here ever since. A few years later, I returned to get my teaching credential at San Francisco State University. I definitely made the right decision as I am passionate about what I do. 

 

Currently, I live in Pleasanton with my husband, Mark of 31 years. I have one son, Jacob, who graduated from Chico 3 years ago and is working and doing well at a company named Openprise. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with family and friends, travel, read, hike, shop, or do half marathons.
