Welcome to B-10. I am looking forward to working with you and your student this year. This is my fifteenth year at Magnolia, the last thirteen have been spent in sixth grade. I really enjoy sixth graders and love going to camp each year. Before teaching at Magnolia I spent 4 years teaching sixth, seventh, and eighth grade at Alta Dutch Flat School and six years teaching seventh grade at Antelope Crossing Middle School. I enjoyed all of my teaching opportunities but feel so fortunate to be working at a great school so close to home.
When I am not a school I love spending time with my family. My husband, John, grew up in the area and is a partner at a local engineering firm. Our oldest daughter ,Eden, will be a second year student Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where she is studying nutrition and Spanish. Our younger daughter, Avery, is a senior at Nevada Union High School. She is very social and keeps us busy with all of her activities. We also have a lot of extended family in the area, including John's grandma who is a 97-year-old Nevada City native.
We spend a lot of time at our cabin in the mountains. We like to hike, kayak, hunt, fish and just relax. We are so lucky to have such an amazing retreat just one hour away. We also spend time visiting my family in the Bay Area. I love the A's and the Raiders and go to games with my dad and brothers when ever I get the chance.
