Welcome to 5th grade in A4! This will be a fantastic year for your student and you. 5th grade builds upon the essential standards and skills taught over previous years. Expectations are high for all students, with the intent that students come to school each day striving for their personal best.
I am excited to continue working with the Graystone community in my ninth year with San Jose Unified, and eleventh year in teaching. My appreciation and passion for teaching is long running. Both my parents are educators, as are numerous family members. I am a Bay Area native, growing up and attending schools in Los Gatos, receiving my BA from UC Santa Cruz, multiple subject teaching credential from Santa Clara University, and MA from National University.
Through exploration, collaboration, and creative thinking, together we will create an amazing learning environment. I thoroughly look forward to working with you this year!
