I have been teaching at James Workman Middle School for 11 years and have loved every second of it! Luckily, room 208 has always been my classroom on campus, so that is the name of my students' production company. Since graduating magna cum laude from Washington State University with a bachelor's degree in K-8 education, integrating technology and using a variety of teaching methods has become very important to me as an educator. I am blessed to have received the following honors:
2015 CUE Outstanding Teacher
2014 California Teacher of the Year
2014 Riverside County Teacher of the Year
2013 Palm Springs Unified Middle School Teacher of the Year
2013 James Workman Middle School Teachers of the Year
2008 California League of Middle Schools Region 10 Educator of the Year.
I live in Indio with my husband, Brandon, who is a Special Education teacher for PSUSD. We have been married for 8 years. Together, we love to teach, travel, talk, and use technology.
