It is with great pleasure that I begin my journey this school year with Fountain Valley at Courreges Elementary. I have been teaching for the past 7 years as a Special Educator. I have taught grades 3 thru 8. I completed my education at Cal State Fullerton after earning a Bachelor of Science in Child and Adolescent Development, Mild/Moderate Education Specialist credential, and a Master of Science in Education with an emphasis in Special Education. I am an Orange County girl born and raised. Most of my free time is spent playing/walking my rescued Border Collie (Gracey), and also spending time with my nieces (Hailey-10, Sarah-4), and nephew (Giovanni- 20 months).
