Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am a 2nd grade teacher at Lakeport Elementary. I have taught here for the last 23 years as a 2nd, 3rd, Kindergarten, T/K teacher. Previously, I taught in Ukiah for 2 years as a reading teacher. I went to school at Mendocino College and then I transferred to Humboldt State University. I graduated from Humboldt with a clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with a supplementary in Art. My inspiration for teaching came from my father. He was a English High School Teacher in International Falls Mn. My mother inspired me to take courses in art. I enjoy combining both of these disciplines to teach my students in all areas of the curriculum. It is a joy to see students learn and discover their learning styles and interests.
