I am originally from Buffalo, NY but moved to Oakland when I was 6 years old. I went to Oakland Public Schools and graduated from San Francisco State with a degree in Cell Molecular Biology. After graduating from college I spent seven years working at UCSF in a research lab doing Cholesteral research. When I became a teacher I always knew I wanted to teach in Oakland because I am very commited and dedicated to this city and it's diverse population.
I am the proud mother of a son, cat, and a dog! My son graduated from Oakland Tech in 2015 and is starting his sophmore year at UC Santa Cruz. I'm excited to start my 16th year at Garfield teaching 5th grade.
