Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies English as a Second Language Certification
I am looking forward to my 16th year of teaching!! I have had the pleasure of teaching second, third, and fourth grade all here at Larkspur Elementary.
I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. In November of 2007 I received my certification for ESL (English as a Second Language).
I have had the pleasure of being the Grade Level Chair and Webpage Coordinator. In 2009 my colleagues selected me to be Teacher of the Year and then in 2019 I was selected to be the Trinity Prize Winner for Larkspur.
During my free time I enjoy reading, listening to music, cheering on the Spurs, taking pictures, riding my mountain bike, and watching movies.
