About Me

Greetings Parents and Scholars, 
I am so excited to start my first year at John Adams Academy. Prior to teaching at John Adams Academy, I was a fifth grade teacher for two years in Marysville. Throughout my experience teaching, I have become very passionate about math and science. I am excited to help your scholar develop a deeper understanding and to create a positive relationship with math and science. 
I was born and raised in the Sacramento Area. I graduated from California State University, Chico with a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology. After graduating from California State University, Chico, I attended William Jessup University and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am excited to encourage Scholars to challenge themselves to try new and difficult things. I look forward to a wonderful year!
