Special Education Teacher 6, 8
This is my first year teaching at Excelsior Academy. I am happy to be a part of this wonderful team of parents and educators! My family and I recently moved to the area from Northern California, where I lived most of my life. While I will miss living within driving distance of both Lake Tahoe and the beach, I am excited for lots of snow days and exploring all that Utah has to offer! While in California, I graduated from California State University Sacramento with my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development, my Mild/Moderate Education Specialist Teaching Credential and my Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis on Special Education. I am married to one of my favorite people and I have three wonderful boys who keep me on my toes! In my free time, I like listening to audiobooks, dreaming of visiting the beach and laughing with good friends. I am excited to be back in middle school as a teacher and I feel so lucky to be able to help students in their journey in becoming a lifelong learner!
