About Me

Hello!  I was born in San Francisco, grew up in Suisun City and have now made my home in Galt for over 11 years! I absolutely love Galt and its small town feel, therefore, I feel privileged to be able to serve the community by teaching pre-k at Fairsite Preschool and School Readiness Center.  

I graduated cum laude from CSUS with a BA degree in Child Development. I initially started my career working with children as a substitute teacher for the Head Start preschool program until last year when I was blessed with the opportunity to teach pre-k here at Fairsite. I find that preschool at Fairsite is the absolute best with all the exploring, manipulating, and learning that it entails!  I am super excited for the 2017-2018 school year!

When I am not planning awesome activities for the children ….I enjoy reading, gardening, shopping and spending time with my lovely family. I am a wife and a mother of four. I am blessed with two boys 15 and 12, and two girls 11 and 9 years old. 

Some of My favorite things:
Food: Just about anything and everything!
Color: Turquoise and lime green
Drink: Fresh brewed coffee
Season: Spring
Sport: Baseball
Store: Target
