    25 years experience

     

    I’ve been married 38 years to Lewis. We have 3 grown children and 6 grandchildren and another coming this spring. They live in California, Michigan, and Madison.

     

    Our oldest son is an environmental scientist in Michigan. Our daughter is an ICU nurse in California. Our youngest son is a writer for Super ATV.

     

    Our newest addition to our family is our rescue dog Cali. Our hope is that she will become a therapy dog in the spring to complement our work with children at Canaan Community Academy.

     

    I have worked with students from preschool through college. I was a Learning Disability Remediation Specialist through the office of Disabled Students at Humboldt State University. I also worked with incarcerated male youths at a treatment center as a teacher in Southern California. I’ve worked with at-risk youth through the years as an educator. I currently am nearing completion of my Masters in Mental Health Counseling.

     

    I love teaching first grade! I enjoy watching children learn and discover new information for the first time! I enjoy the collaboration with staff and the community at Canaan Community Academy.
