Favorite Bible Text:

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

"After a two-year retirement, I am back doing what I love! I have missed the classroom and students and am so happy to be back at RAA!

My ideal classroom includes opportunities for students to know Jesus, to develop compassionate hearts that show kindness and care to each other, their families, and the world around them. Encouraging a growth mindset, growing academically, and becoming critical thinkers are the academic piece of the classroom. I want my students to develop “grit” and know with hard work and perseverance, they can accomplish great things!

The goals and standards for the 5 th & 6 th grades include the SDA curriculum standards for Bible, science, language arts, music, art, and technology. Math is Common Core from Big Ideas Learning. McGraw Hill's Discovering our Past is the social studies textbook.

Experiential and creative learning is the style I want for my classroom. We will have STEM Fridays, art, technology, and hands-on projects in all subject areas. Field trips are essential to me. 

I started teaching at RAA in 1993, with a two-year retirement for the 18-19 and19-20 school years! I have my CA Clear Multiple Subjects Credential and my SDA Professional Credential. I graduated from CSUS with a BA in Liberal Studies and the 5th year in education. I earned my SDA credential from Pacific Union College.


I love traveling with my husband, especially if it includes seeing our grand kids and/or the coast!"
