Welcome Rocklin Academy Families! I am looking forward to my fifth year teaching third grade at Rocklin Academy. I strive to create an environment that is safe, engaging, and collaborative to ensure that all students are successful.


I received my B.A. in Liberal Studies from CSU Sacramento. I continued my education at Chapman University and earned my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential. I have worked with children of all ages in a variety of educational settings for the past twenty years and have over nine years of charter school experience. This will be my tenth year teaching, my seventh year with Rocklin Academy.


I live in Citrus Heights with my husband David, step daughter Amanda, our son Cooper, and our dog, Max. Amanda is twenty-two and recently graduated from American River College. She has plans to pursue a career as an ultrasound tech. Cooper is four and a half.  He has been the biggest blessing and brings great joy to our family. We enjoy spending time together as a family camping, boating, fishing, biking, hiking, and attending sport events.


I look forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year. I am beyond thrilled to be teaching here at Rocklin Academy. I am committed to working closely with Mrs. Sotka and collaborating with the third grade team and parents to ensure that all students have a successful year! Go Eagles!
