Welcome students and families! Welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited to be your teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my twelfth year teaching at O'Farrell. I graduated from UC San Diego with a B.A. in both political science and history. I currently hold my Multiple Subject Teaching credential as well as my Single Subject Mathematics credential.

Here are some interesting things that you might not know about me:
  • I studied abroad in Rome during my junior year of college. During this time, I witnessed the transition between two popes. One of my art history classes required the students to take a quiz in the Sistine Chapel but it had to be postponed because the cardinals were locked in the room until they could vote for a new pope.
  • I interned for a year for U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein. 
  • I was a contestant on the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." 
  • My husband and I traveled around Singapore, an island country, for three weeks. It is 3/4 the size of San Diego.
  • I have a son in sixth grade, a daughter in fourth, and another daughter in second.
