I graduated from Chico State with a BA in Physical Education and a supplemental credential in English. I continued on and finished my graduate studies at California State Hayward (East Bay). Teaching called my name in 1987 because I always enjoyed working with kids and I thought I could make a difference. I've been at Stone Valley since 1989 where I have seen many changes in our school but one thing that has always stayed constant: AWESOME KIDS!!. I've also been the Women's Varsity Basketball Coach at Monte Vista High School since 1990.
I love playing golf and I finally get to cross off my bucket list seeing the Giants win the World Series. This is my 24th year at Stone Valley, although I've had a few opportunities to leave, I keep coming back because I enjoy the kids, the staff, and the community. I can't think of a better place to work.
