Degrees and Certifications:
I am thoroughly enjoying teaching third grade in Room 50! This is my twenty-seventh year of teaching primarily second and third grades. Prior to being part of the Prestwood staff, I taught at Dunbar School for nineteen years. My first few years of teaching were in Los Angeles. I received my B.A. in Elementary Education and both Multiple Subject and Special Education teaching credentials from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California.
My husband Larry and I live in Glen Ellen, where we have raised our daughters, Mikaela and Aria. Mikaela is currently a senior at U.C. Davis pursuing a double major within the Art Department. Aria is a freshman at Davis as well, majoring in Design. As a family, we enjoy taking hikes and picnicking, entertaining friends and our huge extended family, visiting museums, swimming, and cooking together.
Each family is asked to provide snacks for our class to enjoy during the 10:00 a.m. recess. A calendar sheet is available in our class, where families can sign-up for 1 - 2 weeks of "snack duty." You'll receive a reminder phone call a few days before your assigned week. Some popular snacks are:
1. cut-up fruit
3. string cheese and crackers
4. baked items ( muffins are popular)
5. granola bars
