I'm so excited about another year at Windcrest Elementary. This is my 5th year at Windcrest and my 8th year as an elementary teacher. Teaching is truly a passion of mine and I enjoy guiding students to be our future leaders. I am truly blessed to be in this profession.
My husband and I have been married for 16 years. We have three children; my son Joseph, who is 14 and in 8th grade, my daughter Vivica who is 11 in 6th grade, and my daughter Viviana, who is 4 years old and in daycare.
I enjoy going to the movies and spending time with my family. I love to go hiking, swimming and spending our summers at the beach.
