"An attitude of gratitude opens the portals to a richer, more abundant life."
It is with a grateful heart that I look forward to working with our F103 ohana. Working with children is my passion. I have been teaching for the past 23 years, 17 of which were at Pearl Ridge Elementary. I hold a B.Ed. in elementary education and an M.Ed. in special education. I am a licensed and highly-qualified teacher. As a sister to a younger brother with Down's Syndrome and an aunt to a nephew with Autism, I am also an advocate for my students. Family is very important to me. I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and daughter---whether it be going to church, watching their baseball and basketball games, going to Disneyland [woo-hoo!], or "chillaxing" at home, I cherish these moments together---which we all know, go by too fast. With that being said, I look forward to partnering with you and welcoming your kindergartner into our Ho'okele family.
