Thanks for visiting our class website and learning a little bit about your child's teacher!
As a child, I attended schools within the Union School District. I went to Alta Vista elementary school, Union Middle school and graduated from Leigh High School. I attended San Jose State University where I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology. I stayed at SJSU and got my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and my Masters of Arts in Child and Adolescent Development. I have great pride in the 11 years I spent at SJSU, it is a fantastic school and we are lucky to have it within such a close reach.
I student taught at Guadalupe Elementary in 2005 and was hired that summer. I taught Kindergarten for two years and have been teaching 1st grade since 2007. My husband, Jason, and I have three small children, Kiersten (8), Brenden (7) and Reagan (2.5 years). They are such wonderful, loving and kind little people and they keep us exceptionally busy! In our very limited free time, we enjoy going to the cheering on the San Francisco Giants, going to the beach, swimming, reading, cooking, traveling to the Hawaiian islands and visiting with friends and family. I truly love my job and I look forward to a wonderful year with your child!
