About Me

Hello! This is my third year teaching at NP3 and I am new to the Sacramento area. I was living and teaching in Orange County prior to relocating. This is my 15th year teaching. My last name is pronounced (Oon-gow) just in case you needed a little help. I am looking forward to my third year here at NP3 with all of you!

Special Interests: I love animals! I enjoy observing them in their natural habitats as well as having pets as companions. I like hiking, fishing, camping, and most anything outdoors. I love relaxing with my husband and dog. Hanging out with family and friends is always wonderful and full of laughs.

Why I love Teaching:  Working with students is my number one reason for teaching. I get a rush as I watch a student master a new concept or come up with an innovative idea. In addition, if a student has a setback, I view these situations as challenges, which makes me work harder.  The result is very rewarding.

Degree(s): Major: Liberal Studies Elementary Education, Minor: Teaching English as a Second Language

Certification(s): Clear Multiple Subject with English emphasis Teaching Credential
