I’m looking forward to another fabulous year at Rocklin Academy!  I am excited to teach Kindergarten this year with Mrs. Reno. I know that Mrs. Reno and I will collaborate wonderfully and meet the needs of all our students together.  I am looking forward to getting to know my amazing Kindergarten students and their families this year, and to the many memories that are yet to come! I strive to ensure that all my students are successful and to create an inviting, safe, nurturing and fun environment that supports our school rules: Being Responsible, Respectful, Safe, and Resourceful.


I grew up in Roseville and currently live near Folsom area with my husband of 21 years and our 3 adult/teens. There is never a dull moment in our busy household. Our 20 year old daughter is ‘Adulting’ and is a hard worker working full time, plus she is a Professional Make-Up Artist for pageants and other events on the side. Our two 16 year old boys are entering their Junior year in High School and are very busy with school sports and other outside activities. My husband and I love spending family time together and having weekend getaways as often as we can.


I received my B.A. in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Child Development from California State University, Sacramento.  I then continued my education at Chapman University and received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have worked with children of all ages for the past 18 years.  This will be my 7th year teaching at Rocklin Academy.  During these years with Rocklin Academy, I have had the honor to teach 2nd grade and Kindergarten. I can’t wait for another adventurous year in kindergarten!
