Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in San Francisco and received my BA in sociology from UCLA and my teaching credential from University of San Francisco. After receiving my credential in January, I substituted in the San Francisco Unified School District for six months before coming to Cupertino Union School District in the fall of 1988. I was placed at DeVargas Elementary and taught 1st through 4th grade in the nine years I was there. In the fall of 1997, I moved to Murdock-Portal where I taught in 3rd/4th grade for six years before moving to my current position in the 4th /5th grade. In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking and swimming, watching the Giants, and spending time with my family in San Francisco.
