Personal History:

I was born and raised in Oxnard. I have two wonderful brothers and lots of fun loving relatives. Since, I was in 2nd grade I dreamed of being a teacher. I have been teaching in Catholic Schools for Twenty-one years. I first started teaching kindergarten at St. Anne¹s in Santa Monica. Twenty years ago I came to St. Anthony School and fell in love with the students and families. I taught kindergarten for 5 years, then first grade for 5 years, next, 2nd grade for nine years and now I have returned to Kindergarten. I absolutely love teaching and can¹t imagine me doing another job. I have two wonderful children who both graduated from St. Anthony. My daughter and son are both in college; my son is in his first year of college at Villanova University in PA. I married my high school sweetheart and have been happily married for 21 years. My husband is also a teacher. My family loves going on trips and spending time together in the summer with our relatives and friends.
