Welcome to room 12! I am excited to be your child's fifth grade teacher and look forward to the adventures we have together in class everyday. Although this is my first year at Beresford, this year will be my eighth year teaching around the Bay Area. I have my BA. in Liberal Arts and in 2013, earned my National Board Certification in Literacy Instruction through the Stanford National Board Resource Center. I am inspired by all things learning and hope to continue learning along side your students.
In addition to teaching fifth grade, I am the testing coordinator for our school sight, site liasion for district professional development courses, a full time tutor, and a mom of two lovely and energetic children. I am not afriad of a challenge!
I grew up and went to school in San Mateo County and consider myself a peninsula native. I love all things reading, science, math word problems (no...really!), and have been to more living history museums than I can count. I have also dabbled in the theater arts and love the movies. You can often find me hanging out in a Starbucks, correcting papers and enjoying the true passion of my life...coffee!
We are going to have a productive, thought-provoking, and exciting year!
