“Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning.”
Hello Ericson Families,
Teaching is my passion! I strive to challenge, engage and motivate children to work to their highest potential. My goal each year is to provide an enriching, comfortable, safe and fun place for my students to learn and thrive. My entire teaching experience has been in upper elementary and I have taught 4th through 6th grade but 4th is definitely my most favorite grade to teach!
I am a native San Diegan and grew up in Mira Mesa. I attended Ericson from Kindergarten to 6th grade, both Challenger and Wangenheim for middle schools and graduated from Mira Mesa High School. I earned my BA in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Visual & Performing Arts from CSU San Marcos. I also graduated from the SDUSD Urban Teacher Internship Program where I earned my K-8 grade credential. It is extremely exciting to be back in this wonderful community. I am so proud and grateful to be teaching at this amazing school! Go Vikings!!
