I am always excited to start a new year of third grade. I have been teaching since 2000. Starting my career in Kindergarten at Helen Lehman Elementary School in Santa Rosa, three years later I moved to Strawberry Elementary School and was able to teach fifth grade for five years. Being in third grade the last ten years has been a lot of fun, with my first year of students just graduating high school!
When I am not a school, I am busy with my daughter Delaney (12) and son James (8). Delaney is in 7th grade and James is in third grade (nope, not with mom as his teacher). Both keep me busy with Delaney doing hip hop and jazz and James with baseball and dirt biking. We enjoy our rescue dog, Shiloh, hiking, baking and going to my parents property in Covelo to ride horses and quads. I love reading, shopping and spending time with family.
