Hi all, this is my first year teaching at Sequoia and second year with this classroom. I worked closely with the previous teacher this past school year as an Mental Health Counselor. I love a good walk in nature and a home cooked meal. I am excited about working with all the new and returning students this year as we strive to create a community from afar.

Greetings Squirrels! This is my second year working at Sequoia as a Unconditional Education Coach (Culture and Climate). I am incredibly excited to be working with you and supporting our classroom staff to make our classroom a place where students feel safe, supported, and cared for.  When I'm not working, I like going on adventures in nature and traveling to new places. I also enjoy watching my favorite sports teams: SF Giants and 49ers and the Warriors.
