    A little about me... 
     
    This is my fifth year teaching in the Santee School District and my fourth year at Carlton Hills. I absolutely love teaching First Grade. I attempt to teach my students with a passion for each academic area that will encourage them to become lifelong learners. It is my goal to provide my students with creative and fun lessons that fill them with a desire to explore and engage in their learning now and for years to come. 
     

    I grew up in East County most of my life. I went to Steele Canyon High School and graduated from SDSU with a degree in Journalism Media Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I do not have kids yet, but love my dog-son. I often tell stories about him for writing lessons and math problems... He is my best buddy!

     

    I am so excited to work with you and your child this year. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us!
