This is my 15th year as an upper(4th or 5th) grade teacher and my 10th year teaching in Pleasanton Unified School District. I received my undergraduate degree at CSU, Fresno and attended National University for my teaching credential. My certifications include differentiated instruction, GLAD, teaching GATE and Project Lead the Way. I am very passionate about education and believe a person's success depends on the quality of education they receive throughout life.
My family and I live in Pleasanton, so you will see us around town. I have lived in California all my life and the Bay Area since 1996. Outside of teaching, I am a sports enthusiast. I play on a soccer team, golf (though I am not very good), and enjoy watching sports of all kinds. I am also an avid reader; enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, daughter, Sarah and son, Joshua.
