Teaching Passion: Children are my passion. I love to nurture the inquisitive mind while fostering students self-respect and determination to succeed. I love to create positive relationships with students, parents, peers and the community.

Outside Interests: I love doing anything outdoors. In the warm months you can find me boating, swimming, kayaking, or just sitting at the waters edge playing fetch with my dog. I also love to camp and I am not ashamed to say I camp at the campground minutes from my house just so I can sleep under the stars and roast marshmallows! I hike, bike, run and backpack as much as I can. Oh, and I love live music and the performing arts! In the cooler months I can be found at the gym, snowshoeing or relaxing with a good book or movie next to a roaring fire. I am sure you will agree, there is never a dull moment here in the Sierras!

If I could have a super power; I already have a super power. I teach!
