About Me:
I just moved to Santa Cruz, from my hometown, Chico—and I am so very happy to be here! I spent the summer getting settled in, planting my garden, and finding new places to explore with my three boys. Calvin (my wild child!), Gabe (my joker!), and Jaden (Mr. Studious!). We love camping, hiking, playing games and going on adventures. I also enjoy reading, gardening, quilting, bird-watching, and making things beautiful by trying out various art forms. I love teaching because I get to incorporate so many of my interests into my day—and I get to help introduce new topics and ideas to the children. I truly enjoy getting to know the individual students and families and feel so fortunate to help them grow to their fullest potential.
