MEET THE PRINCIPAL
I was raised in a small town in Massachusetts and got my BA in Dramatic Literature from Tufts University. I also studied Biology and Chemistry with hopes of attending Veterinary School. During my junior year, I studied abroad in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I am married with 4 children. Our daughter is a senior in high school, staying in the Bay Area to finish her last year. My three sons attend Los Medanos Community College, San Jose State University, and University of California Irvine and the two oldest will graduate in May 2019. When not working, I enjoy gardening, tending to my animals, and cooking.
I am a lifetime member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA), and successfully presented two new varieties of Lionhead rabbit for acceptance to the ARBA Standards of Perfection. I am currently working on presenting a third.
I am conversational in Spanish and enjoy any opportunity to practice and improve my fluency.
I earned my Bilingual Multi-Subject Teaching Credential from California State University East Bay and worked in Antioch Unified School District for 13 years. I was a 3rd and 4th grade teacher, taught Theatre Arts at a middle school, and was an instructional coach for other teachers in the district for several years before becoming the Vice Principal of a Linked Learning and NAF certified healthcare pathway high school.
I am very excited to have been chosen to serve Plymouth Elementary School as Principal. Working in Plymouth moves me closer to my ‘farm’ in FairPlay, where I dream of one day retiring.
I am honored to have the opportunity to join the passionate team of teachers at Plymouth Elementary. The parent group (PEP) is incredibly engaged in working with the larger community to improve students’ experience during the first 8 years of their education. Together, the faculty, staff, and parents will prepare Plymouth Elementary students for secondary school, college, and careers in the 21st century.
