As a teacher, I bring over twenty years of teaching experience to Pleasant Grove School. While continuing to stay ever current in new educational practices I have attained a Masters Degree in Education from University of California, Chico, earned my teaching credential from University California Polytechnic State University, Pomona, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theater Arts from California State University Fullerton.
I believe in creating an educational environment in which I can meet the academic and democratic needs of all students. I want to instill self confidence, and create intrinsic motivators that empower themselves for success. My goal is to foster students who will respect their community and embrace learning as a means of becoming better citizens, and life long learners. Teaching dance and drama are some of the activities beyond the classroom that I feel contribute in defining and developing self confident and responsible students.
I am married, a resident of Roseville with three college age children. My oldest son is an Alumni of UC Davis. My second son presently attends Cal State University, Chico and my youngest is on her way to Cal State University, San Jose.
