Hi everyone!

   I am excited to be teaching 7th Grade Math, 8th Grade Math, and Integrated 1 this school year. This will be my first year teaching at Rocklin Academy. I received my Bachelor’s Degree and my math authorization in 2010 from California State University, Sacramento. I earned my multiple-subject teaching credential in 2011 at William Jessup University. I spent three years substitute teaching in all of the grade levels. I also spent three years working for California Montessori Project with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders as a Teacher’s Assistant and as the Lead Teacher. I have always enjoyed teaching others, and I especially love helping others with math. I worked for Huntington Learning Center for 6 years. Where I tutored K-12th graders with reading and math. 

   I believe that all students have the ability to learn. However, there are times where students need a little extra help, so that they can understand what is being taught. I have a passion for helping students learn math regardless of where their math skills are at.

   I was born on a Navy Base in North Carolina, and my family moved back to Sacramento, California when I was about three years old. Most of my family is in Sacramento. However, my father and my step-mother live in Oregon. I have three sons (9, 4, and 2 years old). I love to spend most of my time with my family playing unique board games and watching movies.

  I look forward to collaborating with faculty and parents to make this year at Rocklin Academy a wonderful one for our students.
