Meet the Teacher
Welcome to Room 26! I was born in Mountain View, California, but was raised mostly in Richmond. I have taught for over eighteen years in a variety of grade levels. Before coming here to Marina Vista, I taught in Oakland for six years and Richmond for 9. My husband and I have two grown boys, three grandchildren, and a fur baby, my dog Beau. In my free time, I enjoy watching my husband, who also teaches in the district, coach baseball, and spending time outdoors.
I believe that education should nurture the whole child, including their socio-emotional well being. My goal each year is to prepare students for sixth grade and help them develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. I look forward to partnering with you this year!
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
