I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade again this year. I love learning and teaching California history. I am a member of the Kern County Historical Society. I belong to a Mom’s in Prayer group for moms of college age and adult children. I enjoy bike riding and doing water aerobics at the gym. I have two grown children. My daughter graduated from Veterinary school in May and is now working at the Gardner Animal Care Center in Gardner Massachusetts. My son graduated from UCLA with his BS in Physics and is now attending graduate school at Cal Poly Pomona. He is working on his master’s in mechanical engineering. My husband is one of the History teachers for the Kern Learn Online education program for the Kern High School District. I am praying that God will use me to help my students grow academically and spiritually this year.
