I am a Southern California native, growing up in Orange County and recently moving to the beautiful city of Oceanside! I attended Chapman University, where I received my bachelor's degree and went on to complete my multiple subject teaching credential from Cal State Long Beach. I have been in the field of education for eight years and have had the pleasure of working with many different grade levels from kindergarten through fifth grade. However, I have a passion for teaching 2nd grade! It is a year when students experience so much growth. It is exciting to see students really start to excel in reading throughout the year! In my free time I love traveling, camping and spending time at the beach. I am looking forward to a great year with my 2nd graders!
