I began my teaching career in Vallejo, California. I taught fourth grade there for four years and gained invaluable insight into building a creative and structured classroom environment. After Vallejo, I moved to an amazing school in the heart of Sonoma County. We are an award winning elementary school in Sebastopol, and I have been teaching fourth grade there now for eight years. I love what I do and feel grateful everyday for the opportunity to be a teacher.
