Welcome to Room 12's web page!  I am delighted to be your child's Second Grade teacher! I hope to help your child be a "SUPER" student, and to create an atmosphere where we all have fun while learning and growing.

About Me

* I was born in Minnesota, but raised 3rd Grade through high school in a suburb of Washington, D.C., which led to an interesting upbringing having my dad working 2 blocks from the White House, having countless field trips to historical sites, and traveling the east coast with my high school Symphonic Band. 

* I received my Teaching Credential at the University of Denver, and after I moved here to Encinitas, I fulfilled California’s teaching requirements through UCSD.

* I live in beautiful Encinitas with my silly and much-loved dog, Annie.

* I enjoy daily lap swimming, boogey-boarding, taking my dog to the beach, playing the flute, following the Chargers, attending my local Christian church, and being a Godmother to three great teenagers who live in Virginia and spend July/August here in Encinitas.

* I take the responsibility of helping to educate your children very seriously, and will do my utmost to make it a successful year for your child!
 Thank you in advance for your support as we, a parent/teacher team, dive into Second Grade!
