    I am a graduate of the University of California Irvine and hold two bachelor's degrees in History and Art History, as well as a Masters Degree in Teaching. I previously taught 6th Grade Core in the Tustin Unified School District in Orange County, California.  This is my third year at Hillview Middle School as a member of the 6th Grade Humanities Core Team.  

    I am passionate about education and believe that everyone should be a life-long learner.  I am the mother of four children; two sons and two daughters.  I love to travel and have spent time in Italy, Portugal, France, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Spain, as well as traveled across the United States.  During the summer, I often spend time in Washington D.C. where my oldest daughter now lives and works as Press Secretary to the House Judiciary Committee.   In my free time, I love to spend time in the outdoors camping and hiking, as well as biking local trails.

    I am looking forward to encouraging each and every one of my students to strive for excellence. I am thrilled to be part of the team of educators at Hillview Middle School!! Go Hawks!!
