I am so excited to be a part of the Beryl Family for the 2017-2018 school year. This year I am teaching 2nd grade. This is my 20th year in education! I taught elementary school and was a school counselor in Long Beach for 15 years. In 2014, I began as a long term substitute in Redondo Beach Unified School District. I completed my Bachelor's Degree at Widener University in Philadelphia and my Masters in Pupil Personnel Services from Azusa Pacific University.
In my free time, I like to spend time with my family- Sean (6), Ryan (4), my husband Todd, and our dogs, Moose and Rocket. We enjoy traveling, hiking, and reading. We travel back to the East Coast quite a bit, I am originally from Philadelphia and my husband is from Virginia. I moved to California in 1997 to begin my teaching career.
