I have been blessed to be part of the Tovashal staff since its opening in 1998 and a teacher in the Murrieta District for 25 years. During that time I have experienced 1st/2nde and 2nd/3rd grade combinatation classes, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade . I grew up in Ohio where I received my teaching degree. After moving to Murrieta I pursued a masters in special education. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters, Chelsea and Lexi. Chelsea is working on her bachelors degree in music and Lexi is a very talented licensed aesthetician. I have an adorable grandson, Eli. I love teaching and the energy the students bring to my days. When I'm not teaching I love relaxing while reading a great book, spending time with my grandson and having fun with my family.
