Teaching Philosophy : The beliefs that guide my actions in the classroom are that evey child can learn, every child can participate, and every child deserves my best. I have high expectations for all students to work at the level of their pesonal best, and I have those same high expectations for myself. I believe in preparing students for success in high school by providing varied and meaningful learning opportunities. Through classroom discussions, analytical activities, and a challenging writing curriculum, students should leave my classroom ready to take on the challenges of high school.

About Me: I have lived in San Luis Obispo for the better part of the last thirty years. After graduating from Cal Poly with a business degree in 1986, I returned to pursue my teaching credential in 1991. I taught in the public school system for twelve years before joining OMS in 2007. At Old Mission School, I have found my "true calling" teaching literature and composition to middle schoolers. I live in downtown SLO with my husband and two childern, and I am lucky enough to walk to work every day!
