Welcome to Kindergarten! This is my 28th year of teaching, and my 13th year in Kindergarten. I have experience in grades Kindergarten through Second Grade here on the Monterey Peninsula. I love the curiosity and wonder of young children ~ I have raised four kids of my own! I live in Sunny Seaside with my husband, Reiner. Our four children are all college age, but we realize the job of parenting is ongoing! We own a fishing boat in the Monterey Harbor, and I have an obsession for Stand Up Paddle boarding. I love to travel, teach, collect books, garden, read and be with my family and friends. School is one of the best places to be, because I get to do all of my favorite things! I am thrilled to be launching into this "season" of my career. There will be so many new "firsts" for all of us! Kindergarten is a huge year for students and parents alike! I look forward to being a part of your family's experience....I know it will be awesome!
