I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon and am an Oregon Duck at heart! I have lived in Oakland for the last 15 years and recently moved to Castro Valley. I have been working as a teacher in an East Bay independent school for the past 5 years. The majority of my experience is in kindergarten but have also taught in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. In my free time I love to take hikes around the East Bay or go to the beach. I also love to cook and eat yummy food! I am very excited to be joining the Crocker Highlands community!
