My husband and I moved to Ridgecrest from the Los Angeles area in 2004.  I pursued my education and training as a Montessori teacher and have been teaching Kindergarten and preschool in the Ridgecrest community for the past thirteen years.  I believe young children have an innate curiosity for life and a love of learning.  As a Kindergarten teacher, I strive to recognize the potential in all children, encourage their enthusiasm for learning and ignite a passion for life.  This will be my third year teaching Kindergarten at Saint Ann School . . . and I feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community.

Kindergarten Service Project

As a service project, the Saint Ann School Kindergarten class visits the residents of High Desert Haven assisted living facility.  The Kindergarten class visits periodically throughout the year, singing songs and delivering handmade cards/gifts to the residents.  The students are so compassionate and truly enjoy their interactions with the "grandmas and grandpas" of High Desert Haven.
