I love working at Baldwin. This is a wonderful community and I am excited to get to know you all. No matter how many times I do it, opening a classroom in August feels like opening a package. I feel so lucky to have a job that brings such creativity and joy to my life. Thank you so much for entrusting me with your children as they make these first steps in formal education. This is my tenth ( + ) year teaching in the San Ramon School District (mostly kindergarten). Prior to moving here, I taught a variety of grades in Morgan Hill. When I am not teaching or learning about teaching, you can find me reading, sketching, or out in nature enjoying time with my family. I look forward to finding out about you and your children as we begin this incredible journey called kindergarten!
