Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to First Grade! The 2019-2020 school year will mark my 24th year teaching with the Alta Loma School District, though I also attended as a K-8th grade student! I earned my Bachelors degree and Teaching Credential from the University of California at Riverside where I played volleyball for the Highlanders. Later, I earned my MEd. in Reading and my Reading Specialist Credential from the University of LaVerne. I continued to play volleyball for many years until I decided to take on a new challenge in 2009 and ran my first half marathon with Team in Training. I continued doing running events and came back to the Team to complete the LA Marathon. I'm not sure what it is that keeps me running in events because I don't think that I really enjoy the training. I do enjoy spending time with my family, and we enjoy vacationing on the central coast and Hawaii. Outside of the regular school week, I enjoy reading a good book, being outside, or watching a movie on the couch (if I don't fall asleep).
