This is my fourth year as a Beresford Bear but my eleventh year teaching. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Studies and a Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology. At Beresford, I am a member of the HET team, PBIS team, and School Site Council.
I grew up in the Washington D.C. area, where I taught first grade, second grade, and third grade. My family moved to the Bay Area in the summer of 2013 to be closer to family.
I live in San Mateo with my husband Chris and daughter Molly. When I'm not teaching I spend time traveling, cheering for the Washington Nationals and Washington Redskins, rocking out to classic rock music, running after Molly and spending time with family and friends.
*We are working on Benchmark Unit 3: Plants and Animals Grow and Change. The essential question for this unit is: How do living things change?
