Why are you an educator? I love facilitating learning for young students. They come to school with so many unique experiences and language backgrounds; it’s fun and rewarding to guide their reading processes and learning.
What do you enjoy most about your career? I love sharing my passion for literacy with students, parents, and teachers. In addition, I love it when teachers share their successes and challenges with me. It helps all of us develop understanding and builds capacity for teaching and learning on our campus.
Years spent in the profession/district? I have spent thirty years in education, 2 years in Vacaville Unified.
What do you do in your spare/free time? My free time is spent golfing with my husband, spending time with my sons and my grandson. I also enjoy horseback riding, hiking, skiing, and quilting.
What does being a member of the Vacaville Teachers Association mean to you? VTA gives me a voice. I appreciate how VTA embraces new and experienced teachers and provides a network for helping and supporting each other as we hone our craft.
