About Myself

Many of my students don’t know that when I was six, I was on a TV show called “Duck Duck Goose!”

When I was a young girl, I wanted to be an editor for a magazine. I used to volunteer in a childcare center downtown where I helped children learn and do their homework. I realized I loved to help kids. I decided I wanted to be a teacher when I was in high school.

I teach my students Honesty, Integrity, Kindness, Respect and Responsibility.

Outside of Jaguars

I am married and have two daughters. Carolina is 19 and Olivia is 14. Carolina graduated from OLOL in 2017 and Olivia is in 8th grade. The both love being OLOL Jaguars. I have an eleven-year-old dog named Oliver.

I like to spend time with my family and friends. I love to be outdoors and travel. I also like to hike, read, go to the beach and garden.

Jaguar Values

  • I have many special memories, but one of my favorite memories is when first grade dresses up as 100-year olds for the 100th day of school. I love seeing my students dressed up as centurions!
  • This year, a former student wrote me a note telling me that every year he prayed to God that he would believe in himself the way I had made him believe in himself. This brought tears to my eyes.
  • I miss my former students, many of whom have graduated from college.
  • My favorite event is the Harvest Festival.
  • I love baking Christmas cookies each year with my students.
