I grew up in Clovis, California, but have made the East Bay my home since 1989. I graduated from Hayward State, where I received my teaching credential, and C.L.A.D. certification. Prior to joining the Hidden Hills staff, I taught at Strandwood Elementary in Pleasant Hill. I have been teaching since 1997! My experience has mostly been in Kindergarten. However, I have taught a K/1 combination, 1st grade, and looped (where I had the same kids for another year).
As a teacher, I find it rewarding to see the growth in each and every child from when they first started school until the end of the year...it's AMAZING!
