I can’t imagine a better career than teaching! I have loved this work for over 25 years. After graduating from San Francisco State University with a BA in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, I began teaching in the San Mateo, Foster City School District primarily in 2nd and 3rd grade. In 2000, the O’Loane Family left San Francisco and moved to San Ramon. It seemed like yesterday that we attended the grand opening celebration of Coyote Creek Elementary. Balloons, music, stilt-walkers, BBQ, ice cream, cotton candy and visiting dignitaries made it a memorable day. Soon after the school opened its doors (then to just over 300 students) I started substitute teaching exclusively there. Over the years, I worked at every grade-level, served on almost every committee and have encountered the most dedicated families I have ever met. I am very proud to be a member of this staff and to serve this community.
I am a native San Franciscan. I am married to a great guy named Phil. We live in San Ramon with our daughters Phoebe, (18) and Eloise (16) and our dog, Minnie.
