I am beginning my twelfth year of teaching at Nordstrom school. I currently teach second grade, but in the past I have taught first grade and a first and second grade combo class.
Teaching is my passion. I love what I do and think about teaching all the time. This is my second career. Prior to teaching I was a Human Resources Manager for a company in Southern California.
I am originally from the Los Angeles area and most of my family resides in the LA/Orange County area. I am married and have two adult children. My daughter graduated from UC Irvine and works as a software engineer for a company in Irvine. My son is attending Gavilan College.
I have two dogs and we take daily walks to relieve stress and enjoy the outdoors. I love to read in my spare time. I also volunteer at my Church in a children's program called MAD Friday.
I am looking forward to getting to know my new students and having a wonderful year together in second grade.
