I grew up in Ridgecrest and received my B.S. degree at Cal State Bakersfield. I met my husband Ed while working on the base. We have three beautiful grown children and a handsome Australian Cattle dog named Jarrah. In my classroom, I strive to promote an atmosphere of academic rigor, trust and respect. I believe children learn differently and want to learn. I love teaching at Saint Ann School and feel honored to have served the school for more than sixteen years.
