About The Teacher

I am starting my 25th. year of teaching. I started in kindergarten at Virginia
Palmer ES. After teaching kindergarten for 3 years I moved to second grade. I 
moved to Beasley the year it opened 20 years ago. This year will be my third 
year in 3rd grade. 
I live in the neighborhood with my husband, George. I have 3 children:  
Kevin, Trevor and Sierra. Kevin & his wife, Jenna live in Sparks. Trevor and 
his wife Corrine live in the neighborhood. Trevor (Mr. Moffat) teaches at 
Mendive and Corrine teaches at Spanish Springs High. Domenico, my grandson, is 
4 years old and Luca is 18 months old. Sierra works for Chevron in Concord, Ca 
and lives in the Oakland Hills.

I am an avid water-skier and love water sports and hiking. I go to the gym any 
chance I get and pick a challenge to work towards each year. This year I ran 
the RTO for the 2nd time. Any chance I get I go over to my parent's ranch in 
Mendocino county, CA for a few days of hiking, visiting the beach and 
relaxing. I also hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu this summer. It was the 
most amazing and rewarding experience. I spent 14 days in Peru and loved every 
minute of it.

Mission For The Class

I believe every child has the right to learn, to feel safe and be treated with
respect. We will be traveling "the road to fourth grade" this year.
