It takes a village! My family has lived here in Heritage Village since 1990. My own children, Laura and Ben, attended our Etiwanda schools continuing their education through college. Life happens, our family has had ups and downs but persevered through the changes. I started my second marriage in 2014. My children are now working in their chosen careers and starting their own families. I am enjoying my added sons and daughters as well as my first grandbaby.  My husband and I, along with mom, go glamping every month. We see the USA during summers by RV or cruise the world. In between I am an avid quilter/seamstress/crafter and amateur gardener.
I started teaching here in the Etiwanda School District in 1999.  I hold a Bachelor degree from The Ohio State University and a Masters degree from Chapman University.  Through  Etiwanda's Professional Development, I continue my life long learning while earning numerous certifications and advance practices. I have taught in Etiwanda School District first as a Substitute Teacher, then full time at Summit, next at Golden, and finally we opened Heritage Intermediate.  I have taught both 6th and 8th grades, all subjects.
I also enjoy facilitating the elective class of College and Careers for sixth grade. I help students to understand that goals for college and a chosen career start now. Middle school is an integral part of their 5 and 10 year goals.

The Etiwanda School District provides live interactive virtual instruction through the Virtual Learning Model. Please note that during virtual sessions there is no expectation of privacy. Students and anything in their background will be in view of the class.
