About Me

This is my 22nd year teaching in the Roseville City School District. I have taught 4th – 6th grades and love pieces of each one. I attended UC Davis for my Bachelors of Science in Human Development and then CSU Sacramento for my teaching credential.

I am constantly amazed with the professionalism at Blue Oaks and the wonderful families, and I am so thankful to be a part of it.

5th Grade Teacher

About Me

As a Placer County native and Roseville High graduate, I am thrilled to be teaching in my old stomping grounds for the Roseville City School District.  My love of teaching is fueled by the philosophy that if a student is happy, the learning will come easy; so, I work hard to create an environment that is positive and safe for all of our learners. My door is always open, so drop in sometime.

About Me

Aloha! Welcome to Fourth Grade! I have been teaching now for over 20 years.  I love what I do and I hope the kids can feel that each and every day.  My class is a Hawaiian theme because I love the beach and water.  We incorporate the aloha vibe into our daily learning.  It is not only a greeting but a way of life.
