Degrees and Certifications:
I guess you can say that teaching is in my blood and I learned from the best...my mom! I grew up in San Jose and attended Meyerholz, Miller, and Lynbrook. I spent five years attending California State University, Fullerton and received my Bachelors of Science in Child Development and my Teaching Credential. When I moved back home, I started as a substitute teacher at Portal. I guess they liked me, because I was hired as a teacher in 1998! I have been a Little Blue, an Adelie, and a Rockhopper Penguin. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, husband Tim and daughter, Ivy. Ivy is currently a student at Dilworth! We love watching sports, movies, and cooking shows! Being outdoors and traveling are our favorite activities as well! I'm very lucky to be part of the Portal and the Rockhopper family! I love working with the teachers and seeing the smiles on student's faces everyday!
