I grew up in Iowa, and received a BS in Psychology from the University of Iowa. After moving to California, I completed my teaching credential at San Francisco State University. I have been teaching in Franklin-McKinley School District since 2004. I have taught 4th grade at Franklin for the past five years. Prior to teaching at Franklin, I have also taught second, third and fourth grades at Los Arboles. I am currently working on earning my Google Level 1 Certification.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, crafts, puzzles and hanging out with my husband and eight year old son.
