• My family
    Teaching children is my passion! The 2017-18 school year will be my 20th year as a teacher. Wow, where did the time go? I have taught 6th grade for nine years, 2nd grade for two years, and 3rd grade for eight years. A lot has changed in education over the years, however my enthusiasm for teaching is as strong now as it was in the beginning of my career!  
    I am fortunate to have 2 young, healthy, energetic children, Clark and Kate (10 and 7).  They keep Mr. Strickland and me very busy with sports, friends and fun adventures! Besides teaching, I like to draw, paint,  play music and listen to others play live. When we aren't at Solana Vista, you would most likely find us cheering one of our kids on at the soccer field, the baseball field or the football field. I love creating art with Kate, and the whole family loves with playing and snuggling with our sweet Doberman, Stella.
