Welcome & Classroom Information
Welcome to Monte Vista! In order for your child to have a successful learning experience, it is important that as parent and teacher we work together and communicate whenever we have concerns about your child's progress or behavior.
Please email me any time.
Please check your child's agenda and backpack each day and Parent Connect each week.
I graduated from University of California San Diego with a degree in British/American Literature, a minor in Spanish Literature, and an emphasis in Classical Studies (Greek and Roman History/Literature.) I earned a GATE Certificate from Cal Lutheran University. I have been teaching at Monte Vista for 20 years. The first year I worked on Yearbook, but since then I've had the pleasure to coordinate Monte Vista's Spelling Bee each year. Over the years, I've taught a variety of classes at Monte Vista: History, 6, 7, 8; Language Arts 6, 7, 8; Basic Spanish Elective; Geography Elective; Reading Intervention Elective; History 8 Honors, History 6 Honors, and Language Arts 6 Honors. My husband is an engineer at Pt. Mugu. I have two sons. One has a Business Degree from Cal Lutheran University; the other is studying Finance at CSUN.
It is a privilege to work at Monte Vista! The staff are supportive, hard-working, and creative. I love teaching middle school students! They are enthusiastic, inquisitive, full of energy, and always changing. I am looking forward to a great year!
