I am originally from San Jose and went to school within San Jose Unified. I received my B.A. in Child Development from San Jose State and then continued my graduate work at UCSB. In Santa Barbara, I worked towards my Masters in Education with an emphasis on children’s literature (my second love, my first is teaching!!). This is my 16th school year at Graystone teaching second grade (I cannot believe how quickly time flies!).
Mrs. Schwender and I look forward to our year together with your child. Our main goal is to teach your child to be an independent, lifelong learner. To reach this goal, we will take your child from where he/she is at and guide him/her as far as possible, planning very carefully so that your child can feel challenged without unnecessary frustration.
Again, we are absolutely thrilled to have your child in our class and hope that together we can make this a positive and worthwhile experience! Our sole purpose is to be here for your child and meet their individual needs as best we can!
