I LOVE all things teaching and learning! I used to play school in my neighborhood growing up. I even taught my little sister how to read before she attended kindergarten. After becoming a teacher, I took some time off to stay at home with my children. I really enjoyed homeschooling my children for many years with my husband who is a retired United States Marine. Since returning to the classroom, I have taught Pre-K through the 6th grade. A few of my professional areas of concentration and developing expertise include standards-based learning, providing differentiated instruction for struggling learners, and social/emotional learning for all students.
When I am not in the classroom you can find me hanging out with my family, playing with my puppy, hiking, singing, and enjoying long car trips. I am a passionate reading enthusiast who gets more excited from receiving Kindle book gift cards than chocolate! I also enjoy watching airplane traffic patterns, roller blading, American Sign Language, and sampling my youngest daughter's awesome homemade peanut butter cookies. YUMMY!

I am from Sonora and Bakersfield California, and am excited to get to know the Galt and Lodi community. My parents and three younger siblings are living in Sonora and are happy that I am quite a bit closer than Walla Walla University in Washington where I recently graduated! I enjoyed my time student-teaching in 5th grade, and am looking forward to working with our newest 3rd/4th graders.
I love pickleball, tennis, spikeball, volleyball, basketball, working out, and the clarinet. I also enjoy hanging out with my cat, Honey Lemon, though I'm not sure she enjoys my company quite as much! I am happiest in the company of my family and friends and am looking forward to getting to know you and our community!
