I am SUPER excited to be your teacher this 2022-2023 year! In Room 205, we are going to learn together as we read a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction, write in many different styles, solve challenging math problems, and investigate new ideas through science and social studies. Team 205 is going to be AWESOME SAUCE!! I am already so proud of you!
Here's a little about me! I grew up right here in USC and went to Streams Elementary. Check out my 3rd grade picture below!!! After graduating from USCHS, I received my bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and English from Boston College. I also received a Master's degree in English Education from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA.
I began my teaching career in 1997, and taught middle school ELA/Reading in Torrance, California and Plano, Texas. I married my husband in 2000, and we made our home in Texas and Washington DC, before coming back to USC in 2008. I then decided to be a stay-at-home parent for my two boys, George (now 17 and a senior at USCHS) and Thomas (now 14 and in 8th grade at Fort Couch Middle School). With my return to teaching, I have been so fortunate to be a part of the Eisenhower family for the past six years.
Being in third grade means that we are ready to be role models at Eisenhower. We have GRIT, respect, and friendship for all our classmates. We always work at our BEST to be Good Eggs!
