Degrees and Certifications:
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!
