I earned my BA and MA in education at Vanguard University of Southern California. At Vanguard I earned an athletic scholarship to play basketball, and run cross country and track. While attending Vanguard University I met my husband and we have been married for 18 years. My husband is also an elementary school teacher. We have 2 children. Lucas is in 5th grade and Faith is in second grade here at Dalton. I've been teaching for the last 18 years at Friends Christian School in Yorba Linda, California. I taught 2 years of Kindergarten, 5 years of first grade and physical education the last 11 years to kindergarten through fourth grade students. Our family is excited to be here in Idaho. I'm looking forward to teaching Dalton students health and fitness.
