I grew up in Phoenix, AZ. In 2002, the beach and weather drew me to San Diego. I currently live in Poway and enjoy running, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.
I earned my undergraduate degree from National University. I graduated cum laude in 2007 with a degree in General Studies. I earned my Master’s Degree in Cross-Cultural Education in 2009.
I believe that children are a gift and possess diverse talents and capabilities. I consider it a privilege to help facilitate their learning and academic growth. I believe each student learns in their own way and style. I strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment where each student can have the opportunity to experience success and progress. It is my goal to help encourage my students to look beyond the four walls of the classroom and view the world around them as a place of learning and discovery. By doing this, I hope to instill in them a desire to become lifelong learners.
