About Me
3rd Grade Teacher
Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies from California State University at Northridge. Completed teacher credential program at California State University at Bakersfield. Master's in Literacy from University of Northern Colorado.
What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
I love when I can get kids excited about learning and get them to start asking and answering questions about something on their own.
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
I have so many favorites, but the book that I love reading to my class every year is The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.
Santa Clarita, California
I love to spend time outdoors. In the summer, I enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, camping, boating, and traveling with my family. In the winter, I love snowboarding with my family or reading a good book near the fire.
A little more about me: 
I have been married to my wonderful husband Mike for 19 years. We have two children together; Nate is 14 and Travis is 12. I love animals and grew up riding horses and working on my best friend’s ranch. Our family currently has two French Bulldogs, Zoe and Goose, a cat named Cersei, and a Bearded Dragon named Bandit.
