I've taught over 20 years in the primary grades in the public school system. I have also had the privilege of being a lecturer at a CA State University.
I believe every student can achieve. That belief drives my daily work with my students.
I am a teacher adviser for Science Spin. A highlight of my teaching career was traveling to South Korea to teach at a university during my school break.
I have a master's degree in Curriculum Development and Educational Leadership.
I am married to my best friend. I love being a mom and a grandma.
