I am from Vista, California, originally. I graduated from Vista High School and San Deigo State University. I have been a teacher for 24 years, 13 years in California and 11 years here in the Castle-Kahuku complex. I see many students that I previously taught when I was a 6th grade teacher and Academic Coach at Hau'ula Elementary School. I came to Kahuku High and Intermediate in 2012 and I teach Reading and English, grades 7-12. I raised my 2 daughters in Hau'ula, where they attended Hawaiian Immersion. Currently, I live in Waialua with my husband, 2 daughters and our dog, Elton John. Words that describe me- artist, water polo mom, beach lover, swimmer and nice teacher.
