About The Teacher
This is my 21st year in PYLUSD. Twelve of those years were at Travis Ranch Middle School where I taught math & science. Over the past several years I have been one of the districts math coaches and a part-time teacher. This is my third year at BYMS and I am excited to start another great year!!
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from CSU Fullerton and have teaching credentials in both math and science. In addition, I have a Masters of Science degree in Education (emphasis in Special Education) as well as a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership.
I really enjoy being able to try new things. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to travel abroad. I missed the 2011-2012 school year to teach English in South Korea. It was a wonderful opportunity to explore a different culture, talk with teachers & students, meet new people, and travel.
Mission For The Class

"We have committed the Golden Rule to memory;
