Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited to be starting my 14th year of teaching at Beacon Park in First Grade. I was born and raised in Irvine and have had the true joy of teaching in the district that first fostered my love of learning.
I attended The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA where I was able to fuse my love of history and learning by pursing my Bachelor’s in History and Elementary Education. I earned my Masters Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading and continue to love to learn and grow.
My husband and I are blessed with three sweet children: Charlie (8), Miles (5), and Lucy (3). We have lived the past 7 years in Williamsburg, VA and are beyond excited to be back in Irvine. In our free time, we love to be outside at the beach and the park, swim, and spend time together.
I am extremely excited to spend the year together. I believe strongly in the power of yet, helping students understand that they may not know something, not yet, and that is okay! I look forward to pushing your child to do his/her absolute best, to take risks, to laugh, have fun, and to grow together.
