Once upon a time...
I’ve visited countries all over the world but there is no place like home!  Travel has always been a big part of my life.  As a matter of fact, it was while I was on an island off the coast of Greece that I decided I would become a teacher.  After graduating from SDSU, I received my teaching credential from National University and a Masters in Education from Grand Canyon University.  I have been teaching for over 20 years and LOVE what I do.  I hope your child’s time in my class helps them to believe they can (in the words of Coach Lombardi) ”...become better than they think they can be!”
Favorite Sport...
Surfing!  But a close second would be...beach volleyball, football, basketball, scuba diving, snowboarding, wake boarding, hiking, and skateboarding!
Best Athletic Memory...
This would be a shared moment with my son.  I was one of the coaches on his Mitey Mite football team in 2013.  We had an undefeated season and went on to win the Championship...both of which were firsts for any team in that league!  But a close second would be...diving on the Great Barrier Reef, kayaking with a pod of orcas off the Canadian coast, hiking the Grand Canyon, watching a game at Lambeau Field, seeing a game at the original Yankee Stadium, or attending the Summer Olympics when they were held in Los Angeles in 1984.  There’s more but I’m not remembering them right now...has anyone seen my keys?!
