I am blessed to have joined St. Irenaeus Parish School as a first grade teacher. I received my BA and teaching credential from UCI (which is where I first met my husband on a weekend silent retreat and where my twins will be attending school as freshmen). I have been teaching for 25 years in grades K, 1, and 2. I love having the opportunity to touch young lives and to help them learn and grow. I also value the opportunity for learning and growth that I have encountered through so many amazing colleagues, families, and students along the way. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children, playing double solitaire, reading, and doing Tae Bo.
