Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Palo Alto, CA and have lived in Cupertino, CA for over 15 years. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Hayward and my Professional Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from College of Notre Dame in Belmont, CA. I have also obtained an Early Childhood Education Program Director Permit by taking courses through Vanguard University. I have been working with children of all ages for over 25 years now and get tremendous joy out of it everyday. I teach Kindergarten at Faria Elementary School in Cupertino and absolutely love the community of teachers, staff, parents, and students there. Challenging students to strive for their best and having great class discussions that help motivate, build curiosity and creativity have always been my passion. Keep learning fun and interesting!
