One could say I am a native of Lakeside. After attending the LUSD school system and graduating from El Capitan, I ventured to UCSB. Eventually, I found my way back down to San Diego and Graduated from UCSD and continued on with their teacher education program.
I was fortunate enough to get my first teaching job at Tierra del Sol Middle School working as a Special Education teacher. While at TdS, I completed my Masters of Education in Special Education at SDSU. In 1995 an opportunity to work at Lakeview opened up and I transferred into a 5th grade classroom. Since then, I have taught a variety of grade levels and became a Nationally Board Certified Teacher. For 16 years I had been fortunate enough to share a contract with some amazing teachers. This allowed me to find the perfect balance for the two main passions in my life, my teaching career and my family. In 2015, I decided to go full circle and teach at the school that I attended as a child. What a fantastic decision to join the Lakeside Farms team!
I have been blessed with 2 daughters and a wonderful husband. My family enjoys spending time together volunteering, camping and traveling.
Be it a friend from my youth, a former student, or someone new, please come by and say hello!
