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 (found on website under class title). 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 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 sophomore in high school and my son is a freshman at Chico State. My husband and I are excited about this new phase in our life, but also a bit nervous.
We are a soccer family. My husband and kids have grown up playing soccer. My daughter still plays competitive soccer so our weekends are full of soccer. We also love to attend San Jose Earthquakes games.
