2019-2020 marks my 8th year at Phoebe Hearst and my 24th year of teaching. I spent the first 16 years at A.M. Winn Elementary teaching 4th-6th grades and was very fulfilled working to help improve a struggling community, but when I had the chance to come to Phoebe where my daughter was a student, I jumped at the opportunity. There’s never been a day of regret! (Well…there was ONE day, but I won’t mention it!)
Favorite school subject:
As a teacher: math. It’s the most gratifying as progress is so readily evident.
As a student, it’s a tie: literature, creative writing, science, and history. I love learning anything and everything, really.
Favorite classroom activity:
Writing stories about Phoebe Hearst’s mysterious Room 13…bwahahaha!
Why do you love working at PHE?
The kids are much smarter than I am, so I get to learn a lot every day!
