I was raised in Lemoore and currently still live here. I attended elementary school and junior high at Mary Immaculate Queen School and graduated from Lemoore High School. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Fresno State and my Teaching Credential from Chapman University. I have been teaching for 14 years and all of them have been at Island Elementary. I taught 2nd grade for 8 years and now I am on my 6th year of teaching 4th grade at Island School. I am a single mom with three handsome sons, Ryan, Baley, and Conor. Ryan graduated from Island and Lemoore High School and now is working in our community. Ryan is married and has given me two beautiful grandchildren. Blaine, who is seven and Hailey, who is five. My daughter in law is a beautiful young lady and I am so lucky to have her. My son Baley is seventeen and a Senior attending Lemoore High School. My eight year old son Conor is in second grade. I am blessed to work at the school that both my kids and grandchildren attend. I collect angels and write poetry. I enjoy church, water sports, softball, the beach, and Starbucks. I am a crossfit addict and workout Monday through Friday at 4:30 AM.
