About The Teacher

I am starting my 24th. 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 19 years ago. This year will be my second 
year in 3rd grade. Last year I rolled up to third with my second grade class, 
which was a very rewarding experience. 
I live in the neighborhood with my husband, George. I have 3 children:  
Kevin, Trevor and Sierra. Kevin lives and works in Sparks. He just recently 
got married on Sept. 14, 2013. Trevor and his wife Corrine live in the 
neighborhood. Trevor (Mr. Moffat) teaches at Mendive and Corrine teaches at 
Shaw. Domenico, my grandson, is 3 1/2 years old and Luca is 10 months old.  
Sierra works for Chevron in Concord, Ca and lives in Berkeley.

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 first 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 

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.
