I am honored to be a member of Turnberry Elementary since our inaugural year of 2008. I have taught 4th grade ever since. Being an Educator is actually my second career but I can not imagine doing anything else with my talents. I wake up daily looking forward to the challenge and reward of educating today's youth and helping them realize their maximum potentials.
My life outside the classroom: Includes spending quality time with my family, doing outdoor activities such as: camping, running, and hiking. I enjoy reading when I have quiet time. I love sports and playing poker in my leisure time.
