I have been teaching at Courreges for 15 years. I started out teaching 2nd grade in 1999. I have also had the pleasure of teaching third, fourth, fifth, 4/5 combos, and currently I teach first grade. I graduated from Cal State Long Beach in 1997 with a BA in Liberal Studies, and received my multiple subject teaching credential from CSULB in 1998. I am married to an LA County Fireman and together we have two beautiful children; Averie who is 3 years old and Hunter who is 7 months old. I enjoy working out, cooking, reading, and of course, spending time with my family and friends.
