ALOOOOOOHA and HOWDY!
Welcome to my web-site. I have proudly called Cole Canyon Elementary School (CCES) home since 2004. I, myself, have had 3 of my own children make their way through MVUSD. This district is phenomenal!
I know first hand, how vitally important it is for us to work together in creating an educational experience that will be lasting and impactful for "our" children.
CCES is one of Murrieta's finest elementary schools. We are a school that has the most incredible and dedicated educators. I am most proud of the fact that I get to be part of the absolutely AMAZING 4th grade team.
FYI: My class has been dubbed the HOUSE OF THE SILVERSWORD...named after the mascot of my alma mater, Chaminade University of Honolulu.
Mission For The Class
When children enter my classroom, I want them to KNOW that they BELONG there. I want them to feel empowered, confident, and convinced that they MATTER to me. With this confidence, REAL learning will take place.
"Successful teachers are vital and full of Passion.
They love to teach as a writer loves to write,
as a singer loves to sing.
They are people who have a motive,
a passion for their subject,
a spontaneity of character
and enormous FUN
doing what they do."
