After graduating from Ontario High School I attended Mt. San Antonio Junior College then went on to major in Anthropology at UCLA.  After graduating from UCLA I attended Cal Poly Pomona where I received my teaching credential in elementary education.  I have taught 6th grade, 3rd, grade and now 4th grade. I am excited to start my 23rd year of teaching.  


I taught 6th grade for 11 years at a middle school.  I taught 4th and 6th grade at an elementary school for the next 9 years.  This is my fourth year teaching at Stateside.


I am originally from California. Moved here with my three children three years ago.  We have two dogs, and two cats.  One of our favorite things to do is go to the beach.  North Carolina is our home now and we love it.
