I have been teaching in the Pleasant Valley School District for 19 years. Eight of those at El Descanso, three at Valle Lindo and now here. I have taught every grade K-5 except second. I started my college career thinking I wanted to be a computer programmer or a psychologist. Psychology won out and I earned my bachelor's degree. It wasn't until I started substitute teaching that I realized I didn't want to be anything but a teacher. After I earned my teaching credential, I went back to school and earned my Master's of Education in Instructional Design for Online Learning. I recently became a grandmother to a wonderful girl named Evelyn. She joins her 3 year-old brother Jackson. They both havd stolen my heart!
