Welcome to fabulous fifth grade! I am excited that we will have the opportunity to worktogether as your child grows this year. I have loved meeting all of my new faces and look forward to our journey.
A little about myself: While this is my first year here at Frontier, it is my 21st year as a classroom teacher. I began my teaching career in southern California and have taught both elementary and middle school. I love traveling and even lived in Northern Ireland with my husband for the first year that we were married. We have a daughter, Finley, who attends Kindergarten here at Frontier and a two and half year old son, Cameron, who keeps us on our toes! I received my Bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of Georgia and my teaching credential from CSU San Bernadino. Due to my love of learning and my belief in being a life-long learner, I went on to further my education with a Master of Arts degree in Anthroplogy from California State University Fullerton and a Master of Science degree in Educational Administration. I love all things Harry Potter and have even been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios.
This year promises to be rigorous and challenging as we prepare students to be successful in the 21st century. In order to accomplish this, we will work closely together. I encourage regyular communication, as it keeps everyone informed. Please feel free to contact me is you have any questions or concerns, and I will do the same.
