- Teacher Biographies
- Student Support
I love 4th and 5th grade! I especially appreciate the (sometimes sarcastic) sense of humor and emerging identities that tend to occur in this age group. I taught 5th grade in Richmond, CA and felt honored to help my students transition through upper elementary. I’m thrilled to do the same at Coyote Creek.
Everything in my background can be applied to teaching. From volunteering for homeless youth to doing corporate training and presentation development to leading a rambunctious, 30-member Girl Scout troop, I’ve learned that personal challenges are strengths in disguise, public speaking and communication skills are essential (which I teach youth at every opportunity) and cookies really can solve problems! My philosophy is that all experiences are to our benefit—an attitude I hope to foster in my students.
Thank you for welcoming me to the pack!
