Other Course Staff BIO
I grew up in the San Ramon Valley and am delighted to be back working in a school system that served me so well. I graduated from Monte Vista High School in 1985 and went on to complete my undergraduate degree in Psychobiology at UCLA. Following a bit of travel, I attended PACE University in Manhattan, where I earned a Master’s in Education and, ultimately, a Doctorate in School-Clinical-Child Psychology. After a few years of work in New York hospitals and schools, my husband and I returned to California to raise our 3 children close to family and friends. I have been with SRVUSD since 2006.
I am, once again, looking forward to working with the Coyote Creek Community- staff, students and their families, to tackle any obstacles to a successful school year!
My wife is also a teacher in the district, and we share a passion for teaching and working with elementary age children. Our family is involved in baseball, cub scouts, soccer, and softball to name a few activities. We love watching the Giants and 49ers, World Cup soccer (Go Germany!) and many other sports. During our free time, we enjoy riding bikes, hiking, and so many other things the Bay Area has to offer. Teaching and living here in the San Ramon Valley.
I look forward to everything that the new school year will bring - seeing familiar faces, meeting new students and families, leading students to achieving higher levels of fitness and personal goals, exploring new skills and games, and any challenges we may encounter. Let's work, learn, and laugh together along the way!
