I am very excited to be a part of the St. Irenaeus staff! I attended California State University, Long Beach where I received a B.A. in Communication Studies and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 1st grade in the Garden Grove Unified School District for 5 years, after I had my two daughters I took some time to stay home with my young family. I enjoy showing students how much fun it is to learn and it is very rewarding for me to see their growth throughout the year. When I'm not teaching I love to run, read, go to the beach, and spend time with my family.
