Degrees and Certifications:

I received my B.A. in Psychology from U.C. Riverside in 1995. I then decided to use my psychology degree to become an elementary school educator and continued on to earn my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from University of Redlands. After my first few years of teaching I went back to school and earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. I am also a GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) certified teacher. This school year is my 27th year of teaching here in Redlands. I have taught second, fifth and first grade, but for the past 19 years I have thoroughly enjoyed being a Kindergarten teacher! I love working at Mariposa and am excited for the 2023-2024 school year!
