Hello! This is my 18th year teaching 5th grade at Millville Elementary School and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I’m so excited to be a part of the Millville teaching staff and love working with all students, whether it’s inside or outside the classroom.

I was born in Redding, CA and graduated from Central Valley High School in 1989. I attended Shasta College for two years and while there I competed in basketball, cross country, and volleyball.  From there, I transferred to Chico State where I obtained to BA Degree in Liberal Studies.

My first two year of teaching were at Upper Lake High School where I taught sophomores all day, in a self-contained class. Yes, I did learn a lot from that experience.  The following year my family moved back to Redding where I taught a sixth grade class at Shasta Lake Elementary. I also coached soccer and basketball for Shasta Lake Elementary and enjoyed everything about it.

I married my high school sweetheart, Brian, who is a high school science teacher for Shasta Union High School District. Together we have three adult children who graduated from college and are married to their college sweethearts. I have four grandchildren who I absolutely adore and love to spend all my time with. It’s such a blessing.

My favorite thing to do is spending time with my family, but if I’m not doing that I’m either running, kayaking, biking or tandem biking, camping, traveling, or just relaxing on the beach. I love the beach!  I look forward to the years ahead. Go Roadrunners!
