Hello and welcome! I am excited to be working with you this year and look forward to getting to know you. I have been teaching at Union Middle School for many years. UMS is a great school and I love being a part of the UMS family.
I post the weeks homework in my daily agenda slideshow (click Math 8 on this website). I update grades about once a week in PowerSchool. Please be sure to check your grades once a week and see me with any questions.
I am available for help at 8:15, break, lunch on Tuesday/Thursday and after school when not at yard duty. Stop by any time or make an appointment. I look forward to a successful school year with you.
Background/Education I am a San Jose native. I was born at Good Sam and grew up in South San Jose. My husband and I live in the same neighborhood that I grew up in and my children attended the same schools I did as a child. I received my degree and teaching credential at San Jose State University.
More About Me I have two children. My daughter is a junior in high school and my son is a sophomore at Chico State. My husband and I are still getting used to having one child at home.
This summer we started a kitchen remodel and unfortunately are still not done. I am not a fan of cooking, but I am really looking forward to having a kitchen again.
