Welcome to 3rd Grade

I am so excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher. It's going to be a year filled with exciting discoveries and adventures in learning.   I look forward to teaching and getting to know your children this year.

A Little About Me

This is my 20th year of teaching.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade and have enjoyed working with all of those grades. 3rd grade is definitely my favorite to teach, because the students are so eager to learn new information and grow so much academically and socially throughout the year.  It's incredible to be a part of their journey.

I have a wonderful husband and two amazing daughters. My daughters attend Foster City Elementary School.  Sarah is my oldest daughter, and Kara is my youngest.  Sarah is a third grader, and Kara is a second grader this year.

Some of my favorite things are reading, watching movies, baking, camping, and enjoying a really good cup of coffee.
