I am a wife, mom, teacher, daughter and friend. I teach third grade in Surf City - Huntington Beach, California - where I grew up, met my future husband and presently live. It is so much fun to teach and live in the same community where I made so many great memories growing up. I have taught second and third grade for 17 years now and love it everyday. My passions are technology, ice hockey (GO KINGS!), spending time with my family, and being creative. I try to inspire my students to find their passions, too.
