Degrees and Certifications:
As a child, I grew up attending the schools in the Cupertino Union School District. After receiving my undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley, I received both my teaching credential and masters degree in education from Santa Clara University. I chose to teach in this district because I had such an enriching experience as a student here, and I wanted to provide a similar experience for other children. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching in this district for the last eighteen years, and I find each day to be fulfilling and rewarding. Every year, my goal is to provide an environment where students feel successful and enjoy the process of learning. My husband and I have lived in the Bay Area for most of our lives, and we are fortunate to have many family members and friends living close by. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors, and traveling.
