Degrees and Certifications:
UC Davis- Bachelor of Science: Biological Sciences and Anthropology UC Santa Cruz- Masters in Education; Teaching Credential Secondary
I grew up in Santa Cruz, California enjoying the beauty of the wildlife and ocean. I went to UC Davis and double majored in Biology and Anthropology. Next, I went to UC Santa Cruz for my teaching credential and Masters. And now, here I am with the best job ever and working with the best people ever-YOU! I taught at Folsom Middle School for ten years and I am so excited to begin my eleventh year of teaching at Gold River Discovery Center. I have two dogs, a cat and a bird….all named after SF Giants players. My favorite color is green, and my favorite invertebrate is the octopus. If I didn’t love teaching so much I would open a bakery. I run too many miles a week, way too early in the morning. Lastly, I love to laugh and have fun learning, so let’s have a ton of fun this year exploring science!
