Welcome to what I hope will be a fun and exciting year not only for your child, but for you as parents also.  We do a great deal of shared learning and include all of you in many of our activities.  


Here's a few, fun and basic things about myself. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I went to UCLA for undergraduate school (1996), Cal Poly Pomona for Teacher’s Ed (1998), and Walden University for my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy (2006). I am married with beautiful twin daughters who keep me on my toes. I also have a Jack Russell Terrier named Angus, whom we call Gus for short. My husband is retired from the Army after 26 years of service!   

I have been teaching since 1998 and have been at Abrams since 2007. I am thrilled to be in first grade at Abrams this year!
