Degrees and Certifications:
Born and raised in Las Vegas, I grew up attending schools in the area, earning a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education K-8, a Master's degree in Educational Administration K-12, and have been teaching in public education for the last decade plus. I have worked as an instructional coach for a school district, taught at San Jose State for the San Jose Area Writing Project, and I was also fortunate enough to work on the New America Charter School Nevada Board as secretary for two years. My husband Michael also co-owns and operates an event lighting business called Holiday Lights and Bay Area Event Lights in the Bay Area. We love living in California! I genuinely love working with children and enjoy spending time with my own two sons Dylan and Jayson. I love to travel and visit the famous landmarks around the world, craft, read, paint, paddle board, and ride my bike at the beach. I love all things Harry Potter and Star Wars. I and am so excited to be your teacher and to be working at DV with wonderful families and students for the upcoming school year!
