Welcome back, Matey Families!
I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year! I cannot wait to embark on this new journey together. For the past three years, I taught 5th grade here at NP3. While I loved my upper grade kiddos, when the opportunity came up for a first grade position, I had a feeling that I would love to change things up a bit and try something new. I am always up for an adventure and I think this will be an amazing year!
Just a little bit about me... After high school, I attended San Diego State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I traded palm trees, for redwoods, and moved up to the Northern California coast. While there, I earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at Humboldt State University.
While living on the redwood coast, I discovered my passion for hiking, backpacking, and photography. I love to be out in nature and when I am not at home or school, you can find me at a photo shoot, on a trail with my dog, Indy or planning my next adventure! I have been fortunate enough to visit many cities and countries, and I am eager to keep exploring!
Looking forward to a fun-filled year of learning and growth!
