    I have been teaching for 25 years and have been at Pepper Drive School for 22 years.  When I am not at school you might find me buried in a book, exercising, or spending time with my family.
    I earned both my teaching credential and a Master's Degree in Curriculum at SDSU.
    I have been married for 28 years to my husband Bill. We have three wonderful boys; Samuel, Patrick, and Benjamin (who all attended Pepper Drive!).  Sam is 26 and his twin, Patrick, is married to Arianna.  Sam works in law enforcement, while Patrick is a paramedic/firefighter in East County.  Benjamin is a Junior and attends San Diego State University as an Engineering Major.
    In addition to our family we have lots of animals!   We have one dog, Sadie; 14 chickens; and two cats, Rusty and Reggie.
    Creating a positive and productive learning environment for my students is very important to me.  I love teaching and hope to provide you and your family a positive school experience.  We will have lots of fun this year!  :)
