I graduated in 2006 from Pepperdine University with a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education and my K-6 multi-subject teaching credential.   Prior to teaching fifth grade at Santa Susana Elementary, I worked as a Title I reading intervention teacher at Berylwood Elementary School.  I am really excited to be teaching fifth grade and love getting to know my students and fellow SSE staff members.

I was born and raised in Southern California. I earned my BA in Liberal Studies with a mathematics concentration from CSUN and my teaching credential from CSLA. Last year, I was an RTI teacher at Santa Susana Elementary and this is my first year teaching fifth grade. 

I am married with four children, which keeps me very busy. We love traveling, watching our youngest son's baseball games, and going to the beach.
