Being a teacher is a tremendous gift. We are given the opportunity to touch lives which will become the parents and leaders of tomorrow, teachers, doctors, service workers, nurses, and so on. I believe strongly in parent participation not only because of the depth of talents parents bring to the classroom and school but also because children feel more connected to school and take pride when they see their parents actively participating. I've had the opportunity to be a special education teacher, an English language development teacher, and a primary teacher. De Vargas is a wonderful community and we look forward to you joining our community.

I've been teaching first and second grade at De Vargas for many years. In fact, my first group of first graders have finished college by now! Having taught ELD classes for over 10 years, I love welcoming students and families from all over the world. I am a California native, growing up in Pleasanton and spending lots of time at the coast and in Sierra Nevada mountains. I still love exploring the outdoors and spending quiet time in nature. I love to sing and dance and listen to music - and I try to include lots of movement in my class. I'm looking forward to learning and growing with my students and celebrating their accomplishments!

Hello All! I am an Elementary School Teacher who loves her job. I have taught grades 2 - 5 which included looping (where students spend 2 years with one teacher) and combination classes (where 2 grades share one teacher: 2nd/3rd grade combo.) My classes are student-centered with my role more as a facilitator or guide to allow full student ownership in the learning process. I also love to travel, spend quality time with family and friends, and enjoy every minute of every day – a true lover of life. You'll find me at De Vargas Elementary with a smile on my face and a happy heart. :)
