Why did I become a teacher? To have the privilege of helping children learn and grow. I work hard to empower each and every student so that they feel they are valuable, important and that they matter. My hope is that by the time they leave me, and head off to Jr. High that they have the tools within them to be the change they wish to see in the world.
My favorite part about teaching are the connections made. Not just academic connections…although those are fabulous…but rather, connections of the heart. It’s truly an honor to give students the one gift that no one can take away…knowledge.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, (Mark, Carly and Michael) as well as spending time at the beach.
Some fun facts about me: I’m a product of Vacaville Unified…I attended Alamo, Markham, Jepson, and graduated from high school in 1983. Over the past year, I’ve lost 95 pounds and feel like a new person!
Being a member of VTA means that I’m in good company. I appreciate the dedication of all of my colleagues around the district who are working hard in many capacities on behalf of our kids.
