I was lucky enough to grow up here in Santa Barbara so I couldn't be more thrilled to be “home.” I feel equally fortunate to have become part of the Montecito Union learning community. In my short time getting to know everyone, it is evident what a special place this is for our children.
After graduating from San Marcos High School, I completed my undergraduate work with a double-major in Elementary Education and History from Boston College. I returned to California and reunited with a fellow San Marcos graduate, whom I am now happy to call my husband.
Our next adventure took us to the Bay area, where I spent five years teaching various grades for the Dixie School District. Concurrent with my teaching, I completed my MA in Educational Leadership from San Francisco State University and earned my Administrative Services Credential.
I look forward to sharing the joy and passion I have for teaching. My goal is to make Room 17 a place in which discoveries, memories and a little bit of magic happen every day!
