All About Me

I grew up in Placentia, CA in a family of 4 kids, 2 very awesome parents, and 1 "rad" Irish grandma that lived with us a few months each year.  My family and I have lived here in Corona since 2003.  My son, Miles is 21 and in college majoring in Computer Science.  Mara, my daughter, is 19 and is attending college to be a Physical Therapist.  Together we love playing games, watching movies, having family and friends over for BBQs, swimming, going to the beach, watching Angels baseball and Charger football, and much more!  Some of my favorite things to do are cooking and reading, but I spend most of my free time with my kids and their activities!!  I love cooking so much that one of my dreams is to travel to Italy to attend one of their summer cooking schools! 

This is my 22nd year teaching, and I honestly cannot imagine doing anything else!!  I was in second grade when I decided to be a teacher (so I could be cool like Laura Ingalls Wilder J), and I’m so thankful to have a job I love!  I have a Bachelors Degree in Child Development. I went to Chapman University for my teaching credential and then got my Masters Degree in Teaching. I started my teaching career in Anaheim for 6 years, but I’ve been working for CNUSD every since.  Other jobs I’ve had are working for Disneyland as a merchandise hostess, day camp supervisor, and frozen yogurt girl! J
