I love teaching kindergarten. It is my privilege to have the opportunity to teach your children. I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. I graduated from Baylor University with a B.B.A. in Computer Information Systems. While at Baylor, I met my future husband, Rich. We moved to Bakersfield in 1993 where he began his career as a football coach. I completed my teacher credential program in 2003 from Point Loma Nazarene University. Then, in 2008 I completed my Master of Arts degree in teaching and learning. In 2016 I earned my certificate as a Reading Specialist from University of California Irvine.
