I have called Murrieta home for the last 15years. My greatest joys, come
in the form of a 23 year old son, 21 year old daughter, 14 year old son and
my husband who not long ago retired from the U.S. Navy. Of course, our family
would not be complete without our family pet...our dog, Milimili. I received
my undergraduate degree in Behavioral Science, from Chaminade University of
Honolulu. I later earned my teaching credential through Cal
State San Marcos and a Masters in Education from Lesley University.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, photography, listening to music,
going to the theatre/concerts, and volunteering in the community.
I'm very happy to be here at Cole Canyon...one of Murrieta's finest
elementary schools! GO COYOTES!
When children enter my classroom, I want them to KNOW that they BELONG
there. I want them to feel empowered, confident and convinced that they
MATTER to me. With this confidence, REAL learning will take place.
"Successful teachers are vital
and full of Passion.
They love to teach as a writer loves to write,
as a singer loves to sing.
They are people who have a motive,
a passion for their subject,
a spontaneity of character, and
enormous fun doing what they do."
