Welcome to Room 22! This will be my 12th year teaching and my second year teaching 2nd grade at Veterans Elementary School. I have previously taught in the PBVUSD for 10 years in various grade levels including K, 1st, 3rd, and 4th. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and California Teaching Credential in 2005 from California State University of Bakersfield. I have two beautiful children who also attend Veterans. My passion is teaching and I love working at Veterans with the best staff in Bakersfield! I enjoy hiking, reading, going to the movies, or the beach, and spending time with my family who all live in Bakersfield as well. I am thrilled to have the privilege of having your child in my class this year!
