I have been in Franklin McKinley School District for the past 26 years. I taught 6th grade at Bridges, when it was Fair, Stonegate and Sylvandale. I was also a reading facilitator at Santee. About 15 years ago, I became a school counselor here at Sylvandale and have been here ever since. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Degree in Social Sciences with an emphasis in Child Development and a minor in Business. I received both my multiple subject teaching credential and my counseling credential from there, as well. I always wanted to be a teacher since I was in Kindergarten and played school everyday after school for years. I like to spend my time off with my 7-year-old grandson, my daughter, and my dog, a Siberian Husky named Lily. I love to shop and enjoy organizing and decorating my house. My favorite place to vacation is Disneyland.
