About Me

1232I have been an teacher for over 25 years. Most of those years have been in Kindergarten, but I have taught all of the other elementary grades as well. 

I graduated from UCLA with a degree in History and received my master’s degree in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.  

I have two daughters, both of whom are in college. Being a parent makes me strive to be the best teacher I can be…as I try, each year, to create an environment in which I would have wanted my own children to be educated.  I love trying new things and new ways to help my students learn!

Also, I love food from all over the world, working out, crafting, being in the outdoors, my family, and my two dogs, Habibi & Jack!

Distance Learning Schedule - August 2020

Welcome to TK/Kindergarten at Westport Heights!   I am confident that your kiddo will enjoy this year and believe that as we work together, your child will have an amazing year of growth, academically and socio-emotionally.

Children come to TK/Kindergarten with many different skills and talents and at many different levels of readiness. For this reason, the TK/Kindergarten program begins at a slow pace.  The pace quickly picks up as the kiddos mature throughout the year and are ready to challenge themselves. 

I believe classroom environments should be safe, friendly, happy, and pleasant. Students need structure and consistency with the right amount of fun mixed in so they look upon school as an enjoyable place to be and almost don't realize they're learning! When given the opportunity, a child can achieve so much!

My goal, every year, is to create an environment in which critical thinking, problem solving and initiative are valued; where each child is challenged just beyond their comfort zone, all the while respecting wherever she/he is on their journey of learning.  My goal is to provide the structure, learning opportunities, and encouragement necessary to create life-long, self-directed, confident learners.
