About the Teacher
I am happily married to my husband, Rudy, an SGS alumni, Class of 1986. Together, we have 4 children-one son and 3 daughters (ages 25, 21, 17, and 14) and 2 little grand-angels. Our girls have all attended and graduated from St. George. We hope and pray that the Catholic education will continue with our grand babies.
I have attended various workshops and training to further my professional development and teaching strategies-which include Differentiated Instruction, Pedagogy of Questioning, Curriculum Mapping, Active Shooter, First Aid training, Step Up to Writing, Accelerated Reader and Math, Moby Max, and STAR Assessment training. In previous years, I have also served on a WCEA/WASC Accreditation Committee and I was the Junior High Level Team Leader. I have a California Elementary Catechist Catholic School/PMFP Certificate and PMFP.
As a parent, I know your child's well-being is extremely important. I put children and their well-being first. I feel open lines of communication between teachers and parents is extremely important. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me and we can set up an appointment. I look forward to getting acquainted with you and your child. Together, we will make this a great year!
Mission for the Class
My mission, as an educator in a Catholic school, is to encourage the value of learning as a life-long need and to help establish an atmosphere in the classroom that inspires excitement and enjoyment to learning each and every day. Each day I will help my students develop confidence in order for them to do their personal best and to believe in themselves. I will continuously work with parents to provide a caring environment that prepares their children, my students, to act in a responsible, Christian manner toward others.
