I have been a resident of Fairfield for 25 years and have 28 years’ teaching experience in California K – 6 schools. I have been a music teacher, band and choral director, elementary teacher in grades K – 6, a district level technology coordinator teaching, and an elementary school administrator. In 2011, my most recent school, Scandia Elementary, on Travis Air Force Base, was awarded the California Distinguished School Award for work and programs implemented under my watch. Because of my broad educational background, I know and understand what is needed in today’s difficult educational environment. I retired a few years ago from the Travis Unified School District,I love working with children, and am now dedicating my services and skills in support of student achievement and parent support. Through love and patience, I hope to unerstand a child’s needs, meet them where they are, build self-confidence and develop a life-long love of learning.
