After graduating from CSU, Sacramento, I continued my education while teaching in another district. I found my teaching “home” here at Pony Express in 1998. Every year is new, exciting, with fresh rewards.
I received my credential in August of 1998, and began teaching that year in the Twin Rivers USD. I taught there for 8 years. For the past 5 years, I have been teaching in the Sacramento City USD. This in my first year at Pony Express, and I am really excited to be part of the SMART Panthers team!
I just got a Vespa scooter for my birthday, and hope to be riding it to Pony Express soon. I enjoy traveling, reading, sewing costumes, trips to the beach and spending time with my family. Sacramento has been my home for the past 27 years.
