Hello 5th graders and families. I look forward to our year together. 5th grade is an amazing place to be. I am a native San Diegan, born and raised in Lemon Grove. I graduated from San Diego State in 2003. I have worked for San Diego Unified School District for 8 years in grades 5 and 6. My husband and I have a wonderful dog named Diego that we adopted from the Baja Animal Sanctuary in 2012. I love reading, gardening, cooking, and watching movies. This school year is going to be an amazing experience and I look forward to getting to know each of you.
