I have been an Educational Specialist with Springs Charter Schools since 2005. I received my BS in Business Administration from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and attended St. Mary’s College where I earned my teaching credentials in Multiple Subject/Elementary Education and Special Education/Learning Disabilities. Prior to coming to Springs Charter Schools, I lived and taught in various Northern California public schools in both general and special education, focusing on middle school education. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to teach several of my students with Individual Education Plans working on academic goals as well as being their Educational Specialist. I truly love all the learning that my job provides, both for myself and that of my students and families.
Anything outdoors: biking, hiking, camping, rock climbing, going on adventures and visiting as many National Parks as possible! I enjoy cooking meals for my family, working out and going to yoga. I love spending time with my family and any opportunity to get together with girlfriends for lunch and some great chit chat!
I love Shel Silverstein’s poetry, Eric Carle’s illustrations and reading Kate DiCamillo books aloud with my children. I love reading fiction books that make me feel like I am living the story. I just finished reading A Light Between Two Oceans, and it makes me feel like I am a character living the story. Writing like that is such a great talent that I wish I could have!
Reading, math and art were my favorite subjects….besides PE!
I traveled to India, Nepal and Tibet with my husband before beginning the adventure of having kids. For our honeymoon, we traveled to Alaska where we backpacked not far from the Arctic Circle to watch the elk migrate, fished for salmon and kayaked next to amazing glaciers. I am looking forward to each new day where we can experience new adventures with our kids!
