I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO (Go Chiefs) and moved to the Bay Area over 20 years ago.Education is a second career for me and I am so blessed to be doing what I love. I taught pre-school for 12 years in Burlingame and am passionate about Early Childhood Education. I recently returned to graduate school to complete my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. This is my third year teaching Kindergarten and I am honored to be starting my career at Beresford.
I am the proud mom of two very active boys.Nickolas, (17) is a Junior at Hillsdale High School and Matthew (13) is a seventh grader at Bowditch Middle School.`I have been happily married to my husband, Michael, for 19 years. Our beloved German Shepherd, Kodi, keeps us moving each day. Running, reading and trips to the beach are weekend favorites of mine.
Kindergarteners amaze me each and every day. I learn from them, grow with them and celebrate successes with them. I am excited to teach them all the wonders of learning.
