I have been teaching for 25+ years. I have taught in Pleasant Hill and the last 15+ years in San Ramon. Most of my teaching career has been in first and second grade. The biggest joy for me is seeing children learn how to read and develop a love for books. I wanted to be a teacher all my life since the first grade. It is fitting that first grade iswhere I have spent most of my teaching career.
I have two grown boys Brandon and Michael and a daughter Taylor.  I love to spend
time with my family on the beach and going out to dinner and the movies.
In my spare time I like to work on my house (decorating), gardening, and going
shopping .We like to also spend time in Napa and my favorite places are Paris and New York City.
