Welcome to First Grade!

 

 

I am so excited to meet your children and be their first grade teacher!  It is such a year of growth and you will be amazed at all they will learn!

Here is a little about me...

This is my 15th year teaching!  I have taught Kindergarten, Third Grade and Reading Intervention.  I took some time after my own kids were born to stay home with them, but came back to teaching when my youngest entered first grade.  This is my third year teaching first grade here at SEES.  I've taught Reading Intervention at Discovery Elementary in San Marcos too.  While teaching Reading Intervention, I worked with small groups in grades K-3 with students who struggle with reading, writing and reading comprehension.  Before my own children were born, I worked for 10 years in the Anaheim City School District in grades kindergarten and third. 

My husband, Paul, is an art director at Sony Computer Entertainment and makes the video game MLB: The Show!  We have three children:  Lauren, who will be starting 8th grade at San Elijo Middle School, Mason will be in 7th grade at SEMS too and our daughter, Kayden, who begins 5th grade here at SEES.  

Outside of teaching, I enjoy hanging out with my family, going to my son's sports games and my daughters' dance recitals.  I also enjoy reading, going to the beach, traveling and spending time with friends.  We are big baseball fans and love the Padres and the Red Sox!

I look forward to getting to know your families and teaching your child!  2017-2018 will be a great year!
