About Me


A little bit about me:

I grew up in El Cerrito, California. I received my Bachelor's Degree in 
Sociology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1997 and my 
teaching credential from San Jose State University in 1998. Since then, I 
have taught at the Evergreen School District and Milpitas Unified.  

Fremont Unified has been my home for since 2003.  My husband and I 
are the proud parents of two rambunctious boys, Joshua and Ryan.

Teaching your child is of the utmost importance.  I will make every effort 
to teach, guide and communicate to your child the fifth grade curriculum and 
Common Core standards.  Along with curriculum, I will focus on character 
traits and having a GROWTH Mindset vs. a FIXED mindset.  If your child is able to see 
how these how character traits work together, he/she will be able to work 
and master any skill.
