Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in California and have lived in the Bay Area most of my life. I began teaching in 2009. My experience is in Kindergarten, 1st grade and K/1 combos. I have a B.S. in Human Development from UC Davis, and a teaching credential from San Jose State. I'm so honored to be able to work with young children, I feel very fortunate to have a job that I absolutely love! Every summer I can't wait until the beginning of the school year to meet my kids and get to know them.
I'm very excited to return to DeVargas this year, after taking a year off to spend time with my baby girl. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching movies, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I also enjoy traveling.
I am so looking forward to meeting all of you! I believe a strong partnership between teachers and parents truly benefits our children. I strive to create a warm, positive learning environment in my classroom where children feel safe and nurtured to achieve their potential.
