All About Me

Family Picture
Hello, and welcome to 4th grade, Bimat Bulldogs!  I'm so excited to be teaching, leading, developing and caring for you this year! I was born and raised in Bakersfield. I went to Beardsley, North High, Bakersfield College and graduated in 2005 from Cal State Bakersfield with my bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies.  My dream has always been to be a teacher!  

This is my 6th year as an elementary education teacher.  Prior to that, I worked at 24 Hour Fitness for 21 years, as the District Manager covering a very large area of central California. I loved my career and especially the people I worked with, but continued to feel a desire to be an educator of "kiddos".  I received my teaching credential from Point Loma Nazarene University in July 2015...and here I am; proud to be a Bulldog!

I've been married to my husband, Troy for 21 years.  He is a general contractor in Bakersfield. We have two FABULOUS kiddos, Tatum, a 16 year-old, junior at Liberty High School. Our son, Trey, is a 12 year-old, 7th grader at Norris Middle School. We have a little dog named TJ.  I have a huge extended family in Bakersfield, as well.  I am so grateful for my life, family, friends, and career!  I can't wait to meet my new 4th grade kiddos and families.
