It's incredible to be able to say that I started teaching 17 years ago, right here at Courreges! I earned my credential from CSULB in Spring of 1998 and was hired in the fall to teach 5th grade. Since then I have taught every grade, except 3rd and am very happy to have been working with the first grade team for the past 9 years. I live in Huntington Beach with my fantastic husband and 2 kids, Brendan and Emily. We love biking to the beach and spending time with our extended family. We also love to travel to new places to experience different cultures and new foods.
