          Welcome to fifth grade!  I am pleased to have your child as an important part of our class this year.  This is my 21st year at Lincoln, having spent my first year in second grade, 14 years in first grade, and 6 years in fifth grade.  I am blessed to work with an awesome group of teachers and staff,  as well as our wonderful Lincoln students and their families!  
     
       On a personal note, I live here in Corona with my husband and our yellow labs. We have two children who both attended Lincoln. Our son is a high school history teacher and football coach and we enjoy spending our fall Friday nights cheering for his team on the football field! Our daughter will begin her first year as a middle school math teacher this fall and we are excited to hear all about her new school and experiences as a first year teacher!  I also enjoy reading, walking and spending time with family and friends!
         
         As a teacher, my goal is for each child to look forward to arriving at school each day to be actively engaged in learning. I strive to provide a warm and nurturing environment in which students feel safe and respected and all students have the opportunity to learn and grow to their fullest potential. I hope to encourage each student to develop a love of reading and become a life-long learner!
