Welcome 1st Grade Families! 

I am thrilled to be teaching your child in their first grade year - a year full of discovery, learning and substantial growth. It will be a wonderful year as your child journeys into foundational reading and math skills, setting the groundwork for their educational future. 

I am proud that I’ve taught in the Etiwanda School District for 17 years and I’ve been a Colony Cub ever since our school opened, which makes me a Colony Cub original.  My teaching assignments have included kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. 

My husband of 35 years and I have three grown children. Summer of 2020 brought us much joy as one of our daughters got married in an intimate ceremony/celebration and we adopted an 8 week old German Shepard.  

I look forward to getting to know you and your child and working with them in our classroom as soon as it is possible. In the meantime, please reach out to me via email (below) with questions that you might have.
