I am a native of Murrieta (yes...born and raised) and received my Bachelors Degree in Biology from the University of California, Riverside. I then continued my education to receive my Masters in Teaching and a Masters in Administration. I began my teaching career as an elementary school teacher over 21 years ago and then had opportunity to make the jump to High School Biology 16 years ago. It is when I began teaching High School Biology that I discovered my passion for student activities and soon became a Class Advisor and Renaissance teacher. When the opportunity presented itself to transfer to Murrieta Mesa and become the Activities Director it was too good to pass up. After 6 years as MMHS Activities Director, I decided to head back in the classroom full time and I am beyond thrilled to be teaching CP Biology and 9th grade academic seminar once again.
I am the proud mother of 3 boys - Colby (17), Cade(16), and C.J.(14) and when I am not at school I can be found cheering them on at some type of sporting event!
I know it may be difficult to navigate through several teachers' websites and Haiku pages, so please feel free to contact me at anytime. All of my CP Biology classes and well as Academic Seminar, daily agendas and homework will be posted on our Classroom Haiku account. Each student has their own account and I highly encourage parents to not only have the login and password for their students, but create their own parent Haiku account as well. We will be going over this information in class the first week of school as well.
See my class page for a list of supplies needed.
I'm looking forward to a GREAT year!
