Dear Sierra Vista Families,


 Welcome! I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade at Sierra Vista this year. I have been teaching for a total 12 years in California and Washington. I have taught in a variety of settings, but most recently I have taught for eight years in Fairfield. During that time I found my love and passion for primary grade students, especially in teaching reading. I graduated from Sacramento State University with a Bachelors in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential in 2008. I also received my Masters in Arts Degree in Teaching Specialization in Reading from National University in 2013. 


 I am passionate about learning and teaching young children, especially reading. I hold high expectations for myself and my students and love to watch them grow and learn. I believe in building relationships with my students and their families and building a partnership together. My classroom becomes a family through daily morning meetings focusing on social emotional learning and building a classroom community together. It is really important that we have a safe and welcoming environment for all students allowing them to take risks and grow together. 


 I like to have fun and bring lessons and activities to life through movement and music. I am also a tap dance teacher at a local dance studio and teach competitive level tap classes some evenings. Music and dance helped me find my passion for teaching and I am thankful to be able to incorporate it daily in my classroom. 


 My family and I moved to Vacaville almost two years ago. My husband and I have two amazing children who we are very thankful attended Sierra Vista in the past year. This opportunity made me realize very quickly that I also wanted to join the Grizzly family and wanted to be a part of such an amazing school community. When I am not teaching at school or at the dance studio I love to go to live concerts any chance I get. As a family we enjoy swimming, going to the beach, fishing, exploring the outdoors, games and being around our extended family as much as we can. 


 I can’t wait to meet each and every 1st grader in my class and be able to watch them grow and learn throughout the year.
