    I love children and am passionate about teaching. I have been teaching at Montecito Union for 34 years! M.U.S. is certainly home to me and I feel fortunate to be at a school with such eager learners, supportive parents, ample resources, and dedicated colleagues. 

    I have two grown children who are third generation M.U.S. graduates. My son works and lives in Santa Barbara and my daughter is completing her last year of law school at UC Davis.

    I enjoy bike riding and camping with my family and I can also be found reading a good book at the beach.

    My teaching experience has been in the primary grades. I taught third grade for 18 years and then I moved to kindergarten, which I absolutely love! Recently my professional growth has included two training institutes at Columbia University in New York at the Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project as well as the Project Zero Institute at Harvard University. Most recently I am enrolled in some online courses through Mindful Schools. These experiences have enhanced my teaching and increased my enthusiasm.

    Each year I look forward to meeting the children that will be in my class and sharing a magical year of learning and growth.
