Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, first in Campbell and later in Los Gatos. I earned both my bachelor degree and my teaching credential from San Jose State University. I have taught in grades 5th-8th, but enjoy 5th grade very much. It's great to have the opportunity to teach a smaller group of students because I am able to both know my students and their families on a much deeper level.
I enjoy cooking and reading in my free time. My husband Chris and I also have fun traveling, hiking, and spending time with our nieces and nephew.
