After graduating from CSULB, I began teaching at Newland. Newland has been my home for the past 20 years. During this time, I've taught 1st grade and 3rd grade. I have 2 beautiful daughters who attend FVHS. I enjoy spending time with my daughters and my husband. My goal everyday when I walk into my classroom is to make sure I've touched each life in a positive way. I not only want to educate my students but I also want them to know that they are special individuals. Teaching is so rewarding to me because I get to help others celebrate their uniqueness.
