Background:  I grew up in the San Ramon Valley, left for college and then decided to come back to this great area to work and raise a family. I have worked in the SRVUSD since 2007 as a para educator, coach, and teacher.


Teaching/Educational Philosophy: I believe that all students can learn, it is a matter of finding how they learn, supporting them, and watching them become successful. I am a strong believer that effective learning requires collaboration between teachers, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. My goal is to provide confidence that they are smart and can do whatever they put their minds to.


Personal Notes: My husband and I are parents of handsome twin boys. We enjoy spending our time with them and with our friends. I love being a part of Dougherty Valley High School! Go Wildcats! 
Let's go ZAGS and GIANTS!
