It is a true joy to help children realize their potential and support them in becoming life long learners.
I earned a BS in Animal Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, spent several years working in agriculture and as a riding instructor. That is when I fell in love with teaching. I went back to school, earned a teaching credential from Dominican University and have been teaching elementary for 21 years. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy quilting, scrapbooking and going on long walks with my dogs.
I'm excited to return to Maker Camp 2016. I love that the lessons and hands on activities fuel campers' curiosity to learn more about the topic in the middle of Summer! I aim to inspire kids to learn as an enthusiastic learner myself. My campers have plenty to teach me: what an inspiration to work with them!
