Hello!  Welcome to 1st grade!


A little bit about myself:

I grew up in the Bay Area and am a Fremont native!  I went to Azevada Elementary School, Walters Jr. High School, and Kennedy High School.  I later went on to UC Davis to study Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.  I was 2 classes away from a minor in either Communications or Psychology and chose Communications for my minor.  After working in industry for a couple years, I decided to change careers and teach!  After a hard choice to quit my job, I attended San Jose State University for my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and M.A. in Education with a concentration on Curriculum and Design.

I love crafts!  I love to draw, paint, and make cards.  I have hosted a few paint nights with my friends.  I try to knit and have mostly made scarves.  I try to sew and have made 3 dresses of my own!  I also dabble in the guitar and piano.  But now, my husband is trying to get me to get rid of all the "clutter" in the house. ;)

I also love food!  I love all foods and love trying new food!  I love mostly fruits and trying savory dishes from lots of different countries.  I've always felt the best way to learn a culture is through food! 

I am passionate about teaching and am always looking to strengthen my craft.  I am a believer in a growth mindset where the most important things I ask of my students are to TRY their best in their work and to BE KIND.  I look forward to a successful year with your first grader!
