It's hard to believe this is my twenty-first year of teaching! I have taught fourth and fifth grades (all subjects), and kindergarten. After earning a Master's Degree in Education, I began teaching in Pennsylvania and left teaching to be home with my own children when they were young. I went back to teaching when my youngest entered elementary school. I am certified in, and have taught in, three different states. My daughter attends Dominican University of California as a dance major and my son attends HCC while racing motorcycles. Teaching is my passion and I cannot imagine doing anything else!
