Education: 
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.
Hometown: 
Santa Clarita, California
Interests/Hobbies: 
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.
