• Welcome to Room 34

    I am so happy to be teaching 3rd grade at Carmel Creek.  Third-graders are brave and kind and willing to stretch their imaginations.  I'm looking forward to a happy school year with my class.

    A little bit about myself: I am from Orange County, but I have been living in San Diego for many years. This is my 31st year of teaching and I can say I've loved each year!  I taught Kindergarten for eleven years at a private school and then in the Carlsbad Unified School District.  After a family move, I was fortunate and found my way to the Solana Beach School District.  Lucky me :-)   In Solana Beach I have worked as a Reading Specialist and then made my way to 6th grade at Skyline.  After a wonderful 13-years, I moved myself to Solana Vista and enjoyed a 50% contract teaching Kindergarten and helping out with my parents.  Today I am so thrilled to be at Carmel Creek and teaching 3rd grade.  What a great place to land.  Room 34 is beautiful, as are the kiddos who walk through the door.  

    When I think of myself as a teacher, I think of being very understanding.  I appreciate all of my students and everything they bring to the classroom. I love to get to know my students, to find their interests, to incorporate them into my lessons, and to help build our future leaders. I believe we are a family in the classroom and, as such, we work together to be our best selves.

    Outside my teaching life, I live in El Cajon with my better half, John, who is also a teacher.  We love to hike, bike, exploring the great outdoors, and spend time with family.  I am a mom to two amazing young men and a stepson.  Richard and his wife Shelli enjoy working on their house and taking care of their puppies.  Parker and his wife Riley have two babies, Sandra and Russell.  (I am a happy grandma!)  LaMont, my stepson is an amazing artist/woodworker and person.  He and his partner love to travel.  We all live in San Diego County, so I am able to spend time with them and that is one of my biggest joys. 


    Welcome to 3rd Grade!
