Having completed my student teaching at Hillview in the fall of 2015 at Hillview, and after long-term substituting for Grant Coscia (6th grade Humanities Core) while on paternity leave, I was absolutely thrilled to join the Hillview faculty and the amazing 6th grade Humanities Core department in the fall of 2016!
I was born and raised in Menlo Park and attended both Oak Knoll Elementary and Hillview Middle School as a young student. I began my college career at University of Montana, and completed my undergraduate degree and teaching credential at Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont. I am currently enrolled in the Master's Program at NDNU, and LOVE the experience of continuing my own education.
I live in Woodside with my husband, Tony, and our son, Wyatt (who is a seventh-grader at HV). We have a black labrador, Sadie, and two cats: Cassie and Lincoln. I am a Bikram yoga devotee and practice in the early morning before school starts! I am passionate about the outdoors and can be found hiking local trails, camping on the coast with my family, or floating down the river.
Kids and teaching are my true passion. I am excited and eager to work with families while they navigate every facet of the school years. I am ALWAYS open to communication and can be reached at email@example.com
Go Olympus Academy! And GO Hawks!!!
