Degrees and Certifications:
I have been part of the Cambrian Community since 1996, when my twins started Kindergarten at Fammatre. My children (twins) both graduated from college in 2013, Mollie from UC Davis, Joe from Long Beach State. I am very blessed with two bright, successful children - but I do miss them! Luckily I see both often, and they still keep me on my toes!I was a paralegal way back when they went off to school for the first time, and while I enjoyed my work, I found I enjoyed helping at the school more. I subsequently got my my teaching credential at San Jose State, and have been teaching at Bagby for 13 years. Except for a half year in second grade, and a wonderful year teaching a 4/5 combination class, my teaching years have been spent with fifth graders. I am looking forward to another great combination class this year with 4th and 5th graders
I have tried to keep involved in changes in curriculum, and have been a re presentative from Cambrian on the Santa Clara County Curriculum Council for the past 3 years. the focus of the council is the new Common Core State Standards, and how will we implement instructional shifts in the classroom. This is a very positive shift- an exciting time for educators and students alike.
