Hello, Crocker Highlands community and a special welcome to my incoming 3rd graders! I am so lucky and excited to arrive at such a special school where the students are wonderful, the leadership and staff dedicated, the families supportive and the community embracing. I have had the amazing opportunity to learn and grow as a teacher over the past 18 years at four very different schools and am looking forward to utilizing the experiences I’ve had to create an environment that facilitates joy, learning and creativity for all of my students. I am a Bay Area native and my love and appreciation of its diversity and beauty seems to grow with time. I grew up in San Jose and have been in the East Bay since graduating from Cal. (Go Bears!) Currently, I live in San Leandro with my two incredible children, Skylar and Aidan, who both attend Bancroft Middle School. They are my motivation, joy and the reason I see sunshine in every day! In my spare time, I love to explore San Francisco, dance, cook, read and write poetry and just spend time with my beautiful friends and family. Thank you in advance for welcoming me to the Crocker Family! I look forward to creating lasting memories and relationships with you and your children!
