I have been teaching since 1992 and couldn't imagine doing anything else! I began babysitting at 13, moved from North Dakota to California at 19 for my first nanny position and began teaching 4 years later. I attended Merritt College and DVC to study child development . My husband Louie and I have been married for 24 years and our 3 children, Jay, Jon and Samantha are grown and living on their own, leaving us alone with our 2 dogs. I love coming to school every day and sharing the day with the children.
