Education: I received my B.A. in Liberal Studies (Elementary Education) and my Teaching Credential from Chico State. I also have my Masters in Teaching with an emphasis in Reading from National University.

Experience: This is my twelfth year teaching and my tenth year for the Cascade Union Elementary School District. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 4th grades. This is my first year teaching 3rd grade.

I was born and raised in Shasta County. I attended elementary school here in the Cascade Union Elementary School District and went on to attend Anderson High School, I graduated in 1997. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy reading, arts and crafts and shopping.


I was born in Redding in 1988. I attended Grant Elementary School for kindergarten through the eighth grade and graduated from Shasta High School in 2006. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Sonoma State University in 2012. In 2013, Chico State accepted me as a postgraduate student in order for me to pursue an elementary school teaching credential. As part of the teaching credential program, I am working as a student teacher in the third grade classroom of Miss Tompkins. It is a pleasure to work with Miss Tompkins to provide her students with an excellent learning experience.
In my leisure time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, kayaking, golf and tennis. My favorite professional sports teams are the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants.
I am enjoying my opportunity working as a student teacher at Anderson Heights Elementary School.
