As a child I spent many hours hanging out after school in my parents’ classrooms.  You see they were both educators.  Unlike my friend, Kimi Herrera, I did not see the vision of becoming a teacher right away.  In fact, my parents used to say that I would make a great teacher.  I told them, “There is NO way I am becoming a teacher!”   As my life unfolded I soon found myself in education classes receiving my B.A. in Liberal Studies at Cal State San Bernardino. I then finished my education receiving my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and multiple subject teaching credential from Chapman University. I have since received my certificate in TK.  Simultaneously, while pursuing my education and teaching credential I married my high school sweetheart, Randy and had three beautiful daughters- Nicole (32 years), Brianna (31 years), and Makenna (17years).  I have been teaching for 26 years- starting off at Terra Vista Elementary with Kimi Herrera, moving on to teach kindergarten at David W. Long Elementary, and then I moved to Etiwanda Colony Elementary eleven years ago.  I have taught transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, first, and second grades over this long career.  I am “over the moon” excited to be teaching kindergarten here at Falcon Ridge with Kimi Herrera as my partner.  The adventure has begun and I am excited that you will be along for the ride!
