I am excited to be at Innovations Academy and have the experience of aligning my philosophy with reality. I have been a teacher for over 19 years. I hold a Master Teacher certificate and I am currently enrolled in the teacher leadership cohort at High Tech. I grew up in Northern California in Sacramento and the S.F. Bay area. I have two amazing daughters and I have been an active participant in their schooling. I am active in this community as a PTA board member and Girl Scout leader. When I am not working, I am at the softball field almost year round cheering, coaching or both. I was the facilitator of a science club and I hope to someday start a S.T.E.M program for girls to promote their lifelong learning and to have the confidence to pursue degrees in math, science, engineering and technology. One of the places that I love the most is the ocean. Growing up, I went to Santa Cruz and learned to surf and appreciate the power of the ocean. There is nothing more serene than the ocean. I love to read and learn and I am excited to the have the experience each day to inspire young children to have a love of books and learning.
