Welcome and Bio

Hello and Happy New School Year! Thank you for visiting my page. I am super excited about this school year!
I graduated from Clear Lake High School, and I earned a Bachelors in Humanities and a Masters in Educational Management, both from the University of Houston–Clear Lake. Although I have enjoyed adventures over the years living in Austin, New York City, and the White Mountains of Arizona, I am definitely blessed to be back in the Bay Area where I grew up. I have two cats named Malcolm and Little Miss Prissy. My favorite hobbies are reading, listening to/making music, and watching Astros baseball and college football. Hook 'em, Horns!
While this year will be my twentieth year in public education, it is my fifth at Fairmont Elementary, all in fourth grade. This will be my second year as a self-contained teacher, which means that I will teach all core subjects. I love to teach students how to think and communicate, to contribute in developing their social skills, and to help them discover the value of working hard and taking risks. It's quite a privilege.
I can't wait to get to know you and your child. We're going to relish an excellent year at the greatest school on Earth!
