Degrees and Certifications:
We are going to have the BESt year in third grade! I love teaching and look forward to working with your child as we learn together. I have taught for eighteen years. I graduated from USC and earned my Master's degree in Reading Education in 2017. I am certified in both early childhood and elementary education, with additional certifications as a literacy teacher, coach, and specialist. I also obtained my National Board Certification in Literacy in 2020.
My husband and I have three sons; Luke, Ryan, and Austin. Our favorite activities are riding bikes, reading, going to the beach, and grilling out with family and friends. I look forward to working together as partners in your child's education this year!
