Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 16th year as an Oakhurst Owl! Even after so many years, I continue to be amazed by the creativity, curiosity, and idealism of our young learners. My favorite part of teaching is connecting with each of my students and building authentic relationships with them and their families. My teaching goals are to nourish the unique strengths in each student and cultivate joyful learning moments.
Aside from teaching, my family keeps me busy. Spencer and I have a blended family of 5 kids, all of whom are also Oakhurst Owl Alumni. I can’t forget about our 2 dog children, too! I love to read, create art, cook, play outside, build things, explore, eat great food, visit museums and live music venues, along with a host of just about anything else that’s novel and active. I am always seeking out opportunities to learn something new, and I hope to foster a similar lifelong love of learning with my students!
