4th grade Math
I'm a California native and attended Redwood City public schools myself! I was a political science major intending to become an attorney when an opprtunity presented itself and I found myself opening Stanford Delicatessen inside the Stanford Shopping Center. Unfortunately the restaurant taught me that all that glitters is not gold. A huge (and expensive) learning experience.
A few years later after a brief stint as an intern working for an attorney and learning law, I found that it wasn't for me and drifted back into the food business. Along the way I got married, had children, helped a couple of delis open and build their businesses. As my kids grew I became involved as a volunteer in the classroom, at the local YMCA, at summer camps, and as a coach. I came to realize that I enjoyed working with kids, so I returned to school to earn my teacher's credential and a Master's in education. I started my teaching experience at Selby Lane before moving to North Star Academy
It's been a wonderful journey. Friends ask me to describe teaching. I usually tell them, "It's the hardest job I EVER LOVED." Thanks for sharing your kids with me.
