    • I have taught 4th and 5th grade, one year at Monte Vista Elementary and three at Alta Murrieta Elementary.
    • This is my 13th teacher at Thompson, but Mr. Ham taught here for 7 years before me. I have taught for 17 years and I was a 6th Grade PE Teacher prior to 7/8. This is my second home and am very excited to be here. My motto is..."Everything is Better With Ham."
    • I have coached Volleyball at MMHS and MVHS.
    • Of course, my 2 wonderful children; Lacie is a Sophomore at San Jose State with a Softball Scholarship.  My son Jesse, is in 11th grade at Mesa and he is on the Varsity Golf Team.
    • I have 3 dogs: Ella, a Yorkie who is 13 years old and has no teeth.  She loves to sleep right next to me. Willow is a Goldendoodle, with her daughter Harley. (brown) Both enjoy long walks and rides in the car. Willow has had 2 litters of puppies, 27 puppies in total. She is a fabulous mom. 
    • Interesting Facts: Was mascot for my high school and college, The Bears and The Titans; was on The PRICE IS RIGHT T.V. show in 1997 and WON The Showcase Showdown; played roller hockey with Mr. Ham and still love it; and I am addicted to reality shows. Survivor is my favorite. It is my dream to be on that show. Who knows what lies in my future?
