Hello Grizzlies! I am so excited to be joining such an amazing school! This is my first year at GMS as a teacher. I currently have a 7th grader here and my older son promoted to Great Oak last year so I'm quite familiar with this great school! This is my 18th year teaching and my 15th in Special Education. I've been a TVUSD teacher for the last 12 years. I have taught everything from PreK to graduating seniors at TVHS (Go Bears!) I've been married to my husband, Barry, for the last 17 years and we have 5 busy kids! Our oldest, Carly, is a junior at TVHS and plays varsity basketball. Braeden is a freshman at GOHS and is on the freshman football team. Ethan is a 7th grader here at GMS and plays flag football. Gavin is a 3rd grader at TLES and plays both flag football and baseball. Our youngest, Brooklyn, is a 2nd grader at TLES and she does gymnastics, hula and is trying out softball. We are rather busy and you will likely see me at a ball field around town since they are all doing these sports year round! I am originally from Northern California and am a Bay Area fan. My favorite sports teams are the SF Giants, SF 49ers, SJ Sharks and of course the Warriors! In my spare time I love to read, relax, go to the beach and travel. I look forward to having a wonderful year at GMS! Go Grizzlies!
