Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year at Valle Vista Elementary School. I have been teaching at Valle Vista for 8 years.  I am passionate about education and strive to make my classroom a warm, positive, and FUN place for my students to learn and grow. My approach is to create a collaborative learning environment where students actively learn using real-world experiences and approach challenges as learning opportunities.  My goal is to engage and encourage my students to become deeper readers, stronger writers, critical thinkers, and problem-solvers.  My hope is that your children will enjoy coming to school and be enthusiastic about their education.

Please reach out anytime with questions or concerns using the contact information at the bottom of the page.  I check my email several times a day and am available to meet in person before or after school.  I look forward to getting to know you and for the amazing year ahead!
